Tiffany Winslow, the Facilities Coordinator for the Division of Social Sciences, is this year's recipient of the division's Outstanding Staff Award.

The selection committee included Professor Flora Lu (Environmental Studies),  Fred Deakin (Department Manager, Anthropology), and Assistant Dean David Sonnenberg. There were eight excellent candidates nominated for the award, and the decision regarding who should receive this year's award was difficult.

Tiffany Winslow has spent much of her twenty-five year career in service to this university, and she continues to dedicate herself to supporting and improving the lives of many faculty, other staff, and students. Comments about her from faculty and staff underscore her stellar performance, exemplary dedication, and positive and caring attitude. Those who wrote letters in support of her nomination pointed out how she accomplishes things quickly and correctly. They note that she is extremely reliable, responsive, and professional in carrying out her duties. In particular, her problem-solving approach is quite unmatched compared to others who work on campus. She responds immediately to inquiries, both by email and in person.

Winslow is always clear about what can and cannot be done, and she helpfully provides options when required. Winslow regularly follows up after her work is completed to ensure that everything is fine. She supports faculty and staff health, comfort, and, above all, productivity. Clearly, she represents the highest qualities that our campus desires to see in any of its staff. She embodies the kind of caring, conscientious, congenial, and thoughtful attitude that, in partnership with faculty and other staff, makes the University of California in general, and UC Santa
Cruz in particular, a great institution. She has made it easier for faculty, staff, and students to do their jobs, and to do them well. She is an enormous asset to the division, and she richly deserves this award.
