Excellence in Support Service

Each year, the University at Albany honors special members of its community with Excellence Awards denoting exceptional contributions to the life of the campus. Three staff members received this tribute in 2007 for Excellence in Support Service.



Mary CampneyMary CampneyProfessional Development Program

Mary Campney has been working with the Professional Development Program (PDP) since 1989. She currently serves as senior administrative assistant for the program's executive staff. Throughout her association with the PDP she has demonstrated a high degree of skill and competence in dealing with sponsors, vendors, University staff, trainees, students, and peers. She is responsible for preparing more than two dozen PDP proposals and quarterly reports for the program's primary sponsors. She also coordinates all major PDP functions. One recent major event provides a clear demonstration of Campney's superior performance and outstanding quality: her role in coordinating the program's move last fall from the downtown campus to the University Administration Building. The entire effort took more than a year to plan and execute and involved moving more than 120 staff and their equipment and materials. Campney was fully engaged in all phases of the project and made sure that deadlines were met in a timely fashion.
