Outstanding Service Award Recipient
Lisa Rigoni Reeves
It is said of Lisa Rigoni Reeves that “She is able to make the technical aspects of her work understandable to administrators and students, and does so in a way that avoids jargon and that makes those with whom she communicates feel that they understand all aspects of a project or program.” That may not sound difficult, but it is an invaluable skill, and especially useful when you work in areas such as ePortfolio and the Graduation Planner.
The nominator wrote of Lisa’s deep-seated commitment to student learning and success. She works directly with students and helps faculty and staff improve the student learning experience, and creates innovative technology tools for student use. These are all elements of Lisa’s contribution to student success.
That she balances individual initiative with a gift for collaboration is evident in many of the projects she has been associated with. And her dedication to both her colleagues and students is noteworthy, making herself available for those who need her: listening patiently, providing solid guidance and following up afterward.
For her many contributions on behalf of UMD and our students, we are proud to provide Lisa with this award.
