Staff Member Profiled

A reporter for the Faculty of Arts and Science News recently sat down with Ms. Ida Bulat, Graduate Administrator for the Department of Mathematics, to discuss her recent Student Life Award win and her thoughts on the award and her job in general.

In the article Ms. Bulat is quoted as saying: “I’m not here to get awards, I’m here to do my job.” The article is an excellent profile of the selflessness that Ms. Bulat shows towards her job and the department as a whole in her duties as Graduate Administrator.

Outstanding Administrative Staff Honoured

Each year the Faculty of Arts and Science, through the Dean’s office, honours administrative staff for their extraordinary contributions to the Faculty.  This year the Mathematics Department is proud to honour two of it’s own.

Ms. Beverley Leslie, Department Manager, was awarded with the Dean’s Distinguished Service award.  This award is presented to a non-academic staff member who has, over the course of their years of service to the Faculty of Arts and Science, distinguished themselves in ways that are beyond the expectations of administrative peers, academic colleagues and students.

In addition, Ms. Ida Bulat, Graduate Administrator, is the recipient of the Dean’s Student Life Award.  This award recognizes an administrative staff member who has improved the quality of the student experience in the Faculty of Arts and Science. This award recognizes innovations and demonstrated improvements to the services provided to students.

Support for both these awards was strong from both faculty and students in the department.  It is a well deserved honour for them both, please join us in wishing them congratulations!
