Marical Farner Honored as “Let Your Light Shine” Employee of the Month

Home

Congratulations to Marical Farner, who received the University of Colorado Denver “Let Your Light Shine” Exempt Professional Assembly Employee of the Month award.

As Associate Director for Administrative & Technology Services at the Auraria Library, Marical works with others to ensure that Auraria Library systems, initiatives, and facilities remain effective, evolving, and nimble. To ensure that ‘form follows function,’ her duties in the past three years have included facilities’ redesign and construction oversight. Her role has intensified since July 2013 when the State of Colorado appropriated $4M for holistic design and selected projects in the Auraria Library renovation. In May 2014 when the Governor signed the Long Bill awarding another $17.8M for the Auraria Library renovation, Marical’s facility and fiscal responsibilities increased once again.  Her naturally collaborative style ensures design integrity and fiscal compliance through frequent communication with campus planners and fiscal officers as well as steering committees and design teams.

Congratulations to Assistant Professors Denise Pan and Leslie Williams! They are recipients of this year’s Faculty Awards in Excellence.

Denise Pan, Associate Director of Technical Services, is this year’s winner of the Excellence in Librarianship award.Denise’s work takes place behind the scenes, overseeing the acquisitions of and access to the Library’s learning materials. She negotiates deals for large journal and e-book packages with other libraries in Colorado, manages five Library departments, investigates new ways to provide “on demand” PDFs of articles, troubleshoots access problems for our off-campus users, and if that isn’t all, she helped organize this year’s Higher Education Diversity Summit, a tri-institutional annual event held on the Auraria campus.  

Leslie Williams

Leslie Williams, Head of Acquisitions, has been awarded both the Excellence in Service and the Excellence in Research and Creative Activities Faculty Awards. One of the focuses of Leslie’s research is the preservation of cultural artifacts and historic buildings in times of disaster. In 2012, she worked to found the Colorado Cultural and Historic Resources Alliance (CCAHRA). CCAHRA monitors regional disasters, coordinates experts tomove historical resources that are in danger, and educates museums, libraries, and other institutions dedicated to the preservation of our cultural heritage. Last year, during the devastating fires and floods in Colorado, Leslie was active in evacuating a unique local history collection to safety and in stabilizing a historic building listed on the National Register of Historic Places damaged by the flood. Because of this ground-breaking work she has been invited to present at numerous national and regional conferences. 

Three cheers for our talented colleagues!
