The Department is thrilled to announce that Eve Rosekind is the recipient of the 2022-2023 Nancy Rubin ‘Above and Beyond’ award. This award for graduate students was established in honor of Nancy Rubin, the Department’s longtime administrative assistant who passed away suddenly in 2020, and honors Nancy’s exceptional character, values, and ethos of generosity and compassion. Eve, a PhD candidate, was nominated by her peers for her exceptional contributions to their community. In the words of one nominator:
Eve consistently goes above and beyond to support her peers in achieving their personal goals. She takes the time to actively listen to their concerns, offering guidance and advice that is both thoughtful and insightful. Even in the most challenging situations, Eve maintains a calm and professional demeanor, never losing sight of the importance of cultivating collegiality and demonstrating a true sense of compassion and generosity.
Please join us to congratulate Eve in receiving this special honor! To learn more about Nancy, visit this tribute to her life and read a collection of memorial statements by students, staff, and faculty.
