The College of Environmental Design’s IIT managing team—consisting of CED staff members Patty Mead (Assistant Dean, IIT), Jill Martin (Manager, Student Technology Center), Liz Thorp (Fabrication Shop Manager), Chris Palmer (Digital Fabrication Lab Manager), Semar Prom (Fabrication Services Director) Jeff Allen (AV/IT Manager) and Alex Warren (Student Computing Systems Administrator)—won this year’s Chancellor’s Outstanding Staff Award (COSA) for demonstrating exceptional initiative to create significant positive impact on the UC Berkeley campus community.
The COSAs are among the the highest honors bestowed upon staff by the Chancellor. The Chancellor's Staff Advisory Committee (CSAC) established and administers this award program. The process of awarding a Chancellors Outstanding Staff Award is based solely on the written nomination received by the committee as it aligns with a set of criteria, and a limited number of awards are granted each year. CED’s IIT team will be recognized at an awards ceremony in November.
