Professor Elizabeth Clement has been awarded by the University of Utah's Career Services
Faculty Recognition Program. The program, now in its second year, aims to "recognize
faculty members who are contributing to students' career development and exploration".
Dr. Clement was one of 20 faculty members selected out of over 200 nominations to
receive this year's award. Her nomination by student Amy Brown emphasized Dr. Clement's
"dedication to helping students find resources, figuring out their career passions,
and realize the possibilities that exist for their futures".
Dr. Clement will be honored, along with the other winners, at a recognition breakfast on Friday, April 7th. The breakfast will feature keynote speaker, Vice President for Academic Affairs Ruth Watkins.
"With a campus of over 31,000 students, we recognize that our career coaching staff of 10 cannot possibly meet with every single one of these students multiple times, and for the majority of students, career conversations are not a one-time occurrence," says Career Ambassador Krista Chaska. "This is why one of our missions in Career Services is to foster a culture at the University of Utah where everyone is engaging in career conversations."
The History Department celebrates Dr. Clement's achievements and her untiring dedication to ensuring her students have the tools they need to succeed during and after their undergraduate education.
