Teamwork Makes the Dream Work: Two Outstanding Faculty/Staff Member

As the great Vince Lombardi said, “Individual commitment to a group effort—that is what makes a team work, a company work, a society work, a civilization work.” And teamwork is easy at Globe University-Madison West with great team players! This year, two people were awarded Staff Member of the Year and Faculty Member of the Year. These awards were given to two superb employees who care a lot about the students’ success and well-being.

Joan Nyamhondoro, dean of education, was awarded the Staff Member of the Year award. She started at Globe University-Madison West in August and has been there for faculty and students alike.

“Any accomplishments achieved are really due to a team effort. The staff and faculty are fantastic! I appreciate the support and communication between departments, everyone works well together and are invested in helping each other succeed,” Joan said. “The “We Care” mission is evident in the interaction I have had in and out of the classroom. I am proud to be recognized, but I must share the recognition with the phenomenal team that I work with every day.”

Rita said, “What I like best about Globe University is their “We Care” philosophy. We are truly an amazing organization, and I am proud to be a member of the team!”
