Student Affairs Employee Spotlights:

Tracy Kiras, Department of Resident Life

"As a working mother, I have truly benefited from the Division’s commitment to Work-Life integration.  I feel fortunate to be able to work an adjusted schedule.  This allows me flexibility and time to meet the needs of my demanding schedule as a mom to three young children and continue to make professional contributions to the students whom I enjoy working with, the Department of Resident Life and the University of Maryland."
