April 22, 2020 marks Administrative Professionals Day, a national observance held annually since 1952 to recognize the contributions of staff members who keep organizations and institutions operating smoothly.
Administrative professional colleagues in the School of Medicine and Public Health play a central role in advancing health by furthering our education, research and service missions, and perform a key role in building a sense of community throughout our school.
During the COVID-19 pandemic SMPH administrative professionals have provided critical continuity required for a successful shift to a primarily telework / remote workforce mode, showing tremendous resilience and persistence in the face of rapid change.
Throughout our school, administrative professionals embrace, master, and troubleshoot new technology and processes, helping others to learn and navigate new systems. Administrative professionals are often on the front lines of issues and urgent situations, fielding questions from stakeholders with compassion and patience and providing solutions that are simultaneously creative and practical.
Please join us in recognizing administrative professionals today — and every day. We are grateful for your time, talent, and teamwork.
