A Welcome and a Farewell from the CLAS Office of Research and Creative Activities (ORCA)
CLAS has successfully completed a search for a full time Post Award Grants Administrator. Brittany Lopez-Thrasher will join the CLAS Dean's office staff and the Office of Research and Creative Activities (ORCA) team on May 19th. Brittany comes to us with four years of experience at our own Office of Grants and Contracts (OGC), providing service as an academic support professional, billing accountant, and most recently as a post award accountant. CLAS was one of the colleges Brittany served in that capacity. Brittany was an outstanding candidate for our position and we are delighted to have her join our team. Please join me in welcoming Brittany to the Dean's office. Her e-mail address is BRITTANY.LOPEZ-THRASHER@UCDENVER.EDU. And many thanks to the members of the search committee for their hard work: Carol Achziger, Chair (CLAS), Megan Jorgensen (CLAS), Anne Beard (Psychology), Deb Thomas (GES), and Bolormaa Begzsuren (SEHD).
We also wish to extend a sincere thank you to Harley Deschene for serving part time as the interim CLAS post award specialist during the last academic year. Harley's last day with CLAS is May 29th. Please share your best wishes with Harley before then (HARLEY.DESCHENE@UCDENVER.EDU). And please join us for a farewell reception for Harley at 3 PM on Tuesday, May 27th in the CLAS front office. Come wish him well in his next adventures!
