Each year the Graduate School recognizes campus individuals for their contributions to excellence in graduate education.
Stephanie Crouch, Graduate Coordinator in Pharmacy and a true advocate for international students on campus, was recognized for her excellence! Stephanie recently received the 2013 Outstanding Graduate Coordinator Award.
An excerpt from the Graduate School Professional Awards website highlights Stephanie’s passion for working with international students:
Stephanie says of her graduate coordinator role, “While projects and other aspects of my profession can be quantified, one aspect of my position that brings me a great deal of joy cannot be measured with numbers. I work with, and coach, our international students to help them with their English… My language coaching often starts because they are preparing for the ITA exam, but we continue on even after they have passed the test… I love talking to my students and finding out what they consider valuable, and what their goals are.”
Thank you, Stephanie, for all that you do to support international students at UT Austin!!
