Barb Kargus has served UW Oshkosh with care, dedication and professionalism since 1985. The caring heart and soul of the University’s Counseling Center, which houses many programs, starts with Kargus. She is a patient and kind student-focused customer service provider who strives to get the right answers for each of the students she encounters. Kargus is responsible for overseeing a team of students, providing orientation to new employees, scheduling, identifying at-risk students, organizing budget paper work, assisting in the coordination of outreach materials and much, much more — many times in the midst of high-stress situations within the Counseling Center. Kargus has developed significant technical skills in her ever expanding role. She manages the electronic medical records database, which includes training staff, coordinating upgrades, creating forms and generating statistical reports. Additionally, Kargus is the chair for the Quality Circle of Student Affairs, the co-chair for the Awards and Recognition Committee and has previously served as a Classified Staff Team Building and Personal Development Program and Classified Staff Advisory Council member.
