Paul Tsang is a professor of molecular, cellular, and biomedical sciences at UNH and has been here for 24 years. His dedication to his students is just one reason his colleagues nominated him for the 2013 Outstanding Advisor Award from the College of Life Sciences and Agriculture (COLSA) at UNH (read more here). Since fall of 2010, Paul has served as director of the Hamel Center for Undergraduate Research, in addition to continuing as professor, and academic and research advisor, and a member of the COLSA Undergraduate Research Conference Committee.

Beth Rascoe Kılinç, administrative director of study abroad in the Center for International Education, received the UNH Staff Presidential Award of Excellence. She has worked tirelessly on international partnerships, study abroad programs development, and international risk management. Beth participated in panels for internationalizing UNH, and as a result, UNH now has an international travel assistance and insurance program in place and an international travel registry will be rolled out soon.
