  JUDI POWELL, our superb Graduate Program Administrator, and the Dean of Graduate Studies (and former Graduate Program Director), Lisa Young, at the Faculty of Graduate Studies Great Administrator Appreciation Week on February 25, 2015.

Here are the great things people are saying about Judi: 

  • Kudos to our fabulous GPA Judi Powell. We're so lucky to have her!
  • I'm sure the graduate students in Political Science all appreciate Judi Powell. This is to let her know how much the faculty appreciate her. She is always ready to help and to facilitate, and has been a real asset to our department's graduate program. Thank you Judi
  • Without Judi Powell's astonishing attention to detail, fantastic touch with the graduate students, and amazing knowledge of the program and the University's procedures, our graduate program in Political Science wouldn't be half as good as it is. Thanks, Judi!
  • Thank you Judi for your outstanding work in administering our graduate program! Without your expertise we would fall into a terrible mess!
