WCER is very pleased to congratulate the Center’s Gwen Goplin on earning a prestigious University Staff Recognition Award. Just 10 were awarded across campus for 2023.
Winners are recognized for achievements that include promoting the image of the university, demonstrating excellence, showing leadership, recommending innovative ideas, and creating a welcoming workplace. Honorees received their awards at the June University Staff Congress meeting.
A WCER employee for more than 45 years, Goplin helps colleagues with financial projections/reporting, audits, payroll analysis, and other accounting needs, and with navigating grant processes, interpreting uniform guidance, university policies, and other issues.
She consistently attends campus training to learn about new policies, software, and research that is happening while also serving on varying committees for departmental projects.
According to her nominator, Goplin takes the time to care for coworkers, remembering birthdays, offering a kind ear if a coworker is having a rough day, and taking the time to be social and maintain department community.
