Joe said, “I am thrilled that she is willing to take this on for two reasons. First, she is a superb ambassador for the library to the USC and the University at large. Second, she will now have an opportunity to work on the USC in its first active term, following all of the preliminary work of getting the Council organized and operational – essentially what was accomplished during its first two years.”
Reverend Peter M. Donohue, O.S.A., Ph.D., established the USC in 2008 “to encourage dialogue and involvement from Villanova University staff members.” The USC, which replaced Villanova Quality Improvement (VQI), includes representatives from various campus departments. It sponsors events, such as the faculty/staff Christmas party and annual picnic, and awards, such as the Distinguished Service Award.
Congratulations, Phylis, and thank you for agreeing to serve again. We appreciate your hard work!
