Senior Program Manager, UNT System College of Pharmacy
Director of Student Experience and Academic Services, UNT System College of Pharmacy
Says their nominator, “Batman and Robin. Starsky and Hutch. Lucy and Desi. Amongst these dynamic duos, the System College of Pharmacy boasts the most impressive pair of all—Russell and Donna Coyle.”
Russell and Donna have been an integral part of the College’s success since its opening. From onboarding challenges to classroom software management, “Russell is often the first person I call,” says his nominator.
Of Donna, the nominator says, “A number of clinical faculty within the Department of Pharmacotherapy, such as myself, are not formally trained in grantsmanship. Donna Coyle has always taken the care to answer my questions or share resources that may be helpful to me.”
On grants and contracts, Donna is always available to provide guidance and facilitate communication with other departments on campus.
Together, they help foster the College’s culture of assessment and are role models who exhibit the HSC Values in their daily activities. Both are respectful of others’ time, often the first people to join a meeting and the last to leave. They have worked tirelessly to ensure data management processes, crucial to accreditation, run as smoothly as possible. They maintain excellent communication with the other faculty and staff who are assigned to different monitoring standards. They not only compile information, but also spur faculty members and administrators to collect and share much-needed information.
Russell has played an integral role during the development of the College’s Student Engagement office.
A valuable team.
Nominators: Cheng Yuet and Marian Gaviola
