Evan Stanley, student enrollment coordinator in the Office of Records and Registration, was honored with the ninth annual Chancellor's Academic Professional Excellence Award (CAPE) on April 19, 2011.
Stanley has worked at UIS in the Office of Records and Registration since 2005. He began as a student worker and later became the student enrollment coordinator.
“He has done some very innovative work in the Registrar’s office, said Chancellor Susan Koch. “He has dug into our records and had many conversations to compile a report summarizing why students withdraw from UIS prior to degree completion. This is invaluable data when we’re focusing on retention.”
It was also added that Stanley is assisting in a thorough assessment of the Records and Registration website so that better service is provided.
“I think I need to call my high school guidance counselor and say ‘see..see this.’ It says ‘excellence’ right there,” Stanley said to a chuckling crowd in the PAC Restaurant. “I really enjoy working with everyone in enrollment management and the whole office and UIS family.”
The CAPE Award recognizes U of I academic professionals for their efforts in three general categories: work projects, professional development and affiliations, and contributions to their units. The winner receives $500 in cash for personal use, and another $500 is given to the winner’s department.
All academic professionals are eligible to receive the CAPE Award; nominations are reviewed by campus committees and candidates' names are forwarded to the chancellor, who makes the final selections.
Others nominated for the 2012 CAPE Award include Dana Atwell, Clarice Ford, Beth Hoag, Jim Korte, Tulio Lloso, Chrisa Potthast-Leezer, Donna Schaub, Richard Schuldt, Barbara Selvaggio, Evan Stanley, and Thomas Wood.
