Nicole Meily, Graduate Programs Manager, receives a 2021 Chinweike Okegbe Service Award

Nicole Meily is one of three recipients of the 2021 Chinweike Okegbe Service Award. This award (formerly GSAC Service Award) is presented annually by the Arts and Sciences Graduate Council to three members of the GSAS community (students and non-students) for service to the Columbia graduate community. This award is a student initiative; selections are made entirely by graduate student representatives from GSAS based on student nomination letters spanning across all disciplines. The nomination letters submitted on Nicole's behalf emphasized her dedication to the graduate students in Art History and Archaeology. The selection committee was particularly impressed by the number of nominations Nicole's received — about five times more numerous than usual! This will hardly surprise anyone who is acquainted with Nicole’s care, energy, and efficiency, and it is an eloquent testimony of how beneficial her presence has been — and is — for the Department and its students.
