Outstanding Employee Award: Kristina Mollman

As we welcome everyone back for winter term, the Dean’s Office is thrilled to start the new year by congratulating one of our star employees, Kristina Mollman, who was honored with a 2018 Outstanding Employee Award in December. Kristina is the department manager for political science.

In reviewing nominations, the selection committee reviewed each nominee on the basis of their capacity for building community, promoting inclusivity, demonstrating leadership qualities, and exemplifying mission. All of us who work with Kristina in one capacity or another can attest to her skill in all of these areas.

Here’s her nomination statement, which expands on these themes:

“Kristina Mollman represents the magic that happens behind the scenes to keep departments throughout our schools and colleges operating smoothly while faculty are educating the next generation of leaders. Kristina’s colleagues credit her with creating clear policies, processes, and communications that help undergraduate students find their way through the program, access supportive resources, and solve problems as easily as possible. As one colleague stated, ‘she has masterminded the administrative changes associated with a substantial reform of the political science major.’ Kristina’s impact and success have made her a model for other departments in CAS. Others are frequently directed to her for advice and guidance for developing procedures. Many of her recommendations and adaptations in political science have been adopted across CAS.

“One of the more notable accomplishments shared by Kristina’s colleagues is the active role she has played in the creation of a departmental equality and inclusion committee, contributing substantially to the discussion over its mandate and the interaction of faculty and staff responsibilities. In the department’s first tenure-track faculty search within the new Institutional Hiring Plan, Kristina carefully redesigned the entire search process to upgrade recruitment of diverse populations and the systematic consideration of diversity at every stage of our search process.”

Congratulations, Kristina!
