Mary Bartelt, the dean’s assistant in the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh’s College of Education and Human Services, has been named the recipient of the October 2022 STAR Award.

She was nominated by COEHS Dean Linda Haling, Dean:

“The most notable is Mary’s project management of the College of Education and Human Services move out of N/E to prepare for the renovation. Coordinating this effort was incredibly time-consuming, and Mary took the lead to find alternative locations. She worked collaboratively with departments across campus and with the COLS and COB Dean’s Offices to secure offices and storage spaces for the 70-plus faculty/staff members and our instructional academic staff across the college. She collaborated with facilities staff to manage the moving process required by the moving company. She communicated each week with the college to provide updates regarding the move. Finally, she continues to coordinate and manage the on-going issues as a result of the move, working with both IT and facilities to resolve these issues.

A second way that Mary has gone above and beyond this past academic year is with her support of all of the academic department associates (ADAs) in the college. Mary implemented a weekly virtual meeting with the ADAs that began shortly after we began full remote working, and she has continued this weekly meeting even though we are back on campus. This on-going meeting has increased communication in the college and has resulted in considerably more transparency. She is to be commended for this effort.
