I am posting this as a Ph.D. student at Mines (though I am also teaching faculty). This semester I took CSCI 406, Algorithms, as a remote student. Dr. Dinesh Mehta, the instructor, did a phenomenal job to provide us not only with great videos with slides superimposed in post-processing to great effect, but also interacting with us via Zoom to provide us with direction and assistance on the worksheets that made it an active classroom. His flipping of exams to handle the open-book nature was also extremely well done and much appreciated. It’s clear he cares about students and providing a high-quality experience to all of us. As a remote student, I appreciate his efforts as it ensured I could keep my aging parents safe while providing them the assistance they needed this semester.

Dorie Chen, department manager in Geology and Geological Engineering, has done an amazing job this semester and over the summer keeping our department and our home, Berthoud Hall, safe. She has managed an array of issues in our building, including graduate student access, lab access, reconfiguring classrooms, and she done many other jobs that have kept our students, faculty, and staff safe. Thanks Dorie, for everything you have done this semester and for all of your work over the summer!...

Our division program assistant, Ms. Jody Lowther, has done and is doing so much to assure that HASS continues to run smoothly even under pandemic conditions. While she is vital even in the best times, these days she is invaluable! Thank you for all you do, Jody.
