The Graduate School recently presented the inaugural awards for the Outstanding Director of Graduate Study and the Outstanding Administrative Assistant this semester’s Directors of Graduate Study (DGS) luncheon. These two awards will now be presented annually to one faculty member and one staff member who have demonstrated outstanding work in their roles while working alongside the Graduate School staff and administrators.

Dr. Paul Steimle, the Director of Graduate Study in the Department of Biology, was selected as the recipient of the Outstanding Director of Graduate Study Award and Janeen Chastain, from the Department of Peace and Conflict Studies, was selected as the recipient of the Outstanding Administrative Assistant Award for the 2016-17 academic year.

These recipients have set a high standard for the future recipients and represent the very best of UNCG’s efforts on behalf of its graduate students.

Award recipients for the 2017-18 academic year will be selected during the spring 2018 semester.
