Nomination: This month, Dawn and I would like to nominate Eric Hilldorfer for the Student Affairs Spotlight Award. Eric works as the Employer Relations Manager in Career Development and Education, where his primary goal is to connect employers with UW Tacoma students, expanding the internship and career opportunities available to them. Eric joined our team at the start of the pandemic and has been a resilient and effective staff member who is also joyful to work with!
