Victoria Berry serves as a Research Coordinator in the Department of Geographical Sciences, providing financial and administrative support for multiple research project grants and research faculty members. However, she has always gone above and beyond this role, stepping up in many other areas of department administration during her time with GEOG. She has an extensive background in financial coordination, purchasing and procurement, and many other UMD campus systems and has proven an extremely valuable asset to our team. The College’s annual Outstanding Staff Award: Exceptional Contribution recognizes staff members who:  

  • Contributed a creative and innovative approach to process improvements

  • Supplied an original idea that contributed to the success of the unit/institution

  • In a non-leadership position, provided leadership, team building and/or facilitated a team or project that enhanced the organization 

  • In a leadership position, consistently grew their organization by mentoring each of their subordinates.

Congratulations to Vicky on receiving this award in 2020, formally acknowledging her service and dedication to the department and beyond!
