The Get to Know series in Iowa Now asks University of Iowa faculty, staff, and students a few questions about their work and their outside interests. Each of these extraordinary people has a unique story to tell.
"In August, I was fortunate enough to start working in International Programs as the assistant director of the Communications and Relations unit. This talented group of people supports the work of International Programs in a number of ways, including outreach through the WorldCanvass program and K–12 initiatives, managing the IP website, planning events such as the Provost’s Global Forum, and hosting delegation visits from across the globe."
"As conservator for the University Libraries, it is my job to oversee all the physical repair and stabilization of library collections so that they may be used by the university community and other institutions. This includes anything from mending tears in a map, chemically treating paper to prolong its life, cleaning mold from a waterlogged book, or creating a new binding for a book when its original sewing and covers have failed. One might not expect it, but when an item goes on display in an exhibit, it receives more handling than usual, undergoing different kinds of physical stress. I repair, stabilize, and prepare materials for exhibit, and consider all the environmental factors."
"I am the military and veteran education specialist on campus, which means I work to ensure personal and academic success among our veteran students. That involves making sure their benefits are taken care of and providing them with access to all the resources and tools on campus they need to thrive."
