May 14, 2013

UMTRI business administrator Catherine Seay-Ostrowski was one of three University of Michigan staff members honored by the Office of the Vice President for Research (OVPR) for outstanding research service at a special ceremony on Tuesday, May 14, at the U-M Michigan League.

Seay-Ostrowski and Linda Chadwick (College of Engineering) each received a Distinguished Research Administrator Award. Donna Mulkey (Center for Human Growth and Development) received the OVPR Exceptional Service Award.

"With a budget of $1.27 billion, U-M's research operation is one of the largest of any university worldwide," says Stephen Forrest, Vice President for Research. "It would be impossible to successfully administer such a complicated and wide-ranging operation without the energy, skill, and hard work exemplified by these award winners."

The Distinguished Research Administrator Award honors individuals from any unit at the university who have demonstrated over a number of years distinguished service exemplifying the goals of professional research administration. Each winner receives an honorarium and an award plaque.

Seay-Ostrowski has held various positions and leadership roles in her 23 years at the University of Michigan. She has been at UMTRI since 2005.
