Chief Administrative Officer Tracy Lade has been awarded the 2024 GSA Award for Excellence in Service to Graduate Students

Tracy has facilitated countless initiatives by graduate students over the years, including, recently, distributing the GradOPS undergraduate research spreadsheet, getting HEPA filter units placed in high-use department spaces, and implementing a new department feedback form to help our department be more responsive to the needs of its community members. Numerous graduate students have stories to tell about how Tracy had helped them, through personally engaging with the TEAM-UP initiative and supporting disabled students through facilities requests and more.
