Rebecca Dueben, Student Services Coordinator, Voiland College of Engineering and Architecture-Student Success received Crimson Spirit recognition for exceeding expectations, creative problem solving and providing outstanding contributions to the WSU community.

Her nominator says, “Her sincere care for students is evident in everything she does.  She is admired by the tutors and ambassadors she works with, provides a warm and welcoming center for everyone and often purchases supplies and healthy snacks with her personal funds. Becky also took the initiative to ensure the tutoring program was nationally accredited. She deeply cares about each student, and takes pride in their successes, which are numerous.”

Matthias McFarlane, Computer Science tutor, made these comments, “I want to congratulate Becky Dueben, she has done an amazing job with the tutoring center. Thanks to her, every single one of the tutors that work for Voiland College of Engineering is nationally certified in tutoring.

We came back from spring break, and hit the ground running. We did not miss a single tutorial; we made sure that the students knew that we were here to support them.  And they knew that we were here to make sure that their success was our success.”

Becky’s nominator also wants to add, “She quickly pivoted to online tutoring last spring, not missing a beat, and helping as many students as she would have under non COVID-19 circumstances. Becky is the epitome of Crimson Spirit.

Ms. Dueben is recognized for providing superior quality service, expressing genuine interest, and presenting noteworthy extra effort.
