Gail Hurley

Associate Vice President for Auxiliary and Business Services

Key event in career

I would say that my experience as an Administrative Fellow convinced me that I could do more than I had been.

How she expanded her sphere of influence

I try to keep up to date on issues and projects around the University. When something is interesting to me or I believe there is something I can contribute to the effort, I contact the individual responsible and express my interest and offer assistance. THis helps me to be involved in areas outside of my direct responsibility and has enhanced my network across the University as well as my understanding of various issues and projects.
