The University Record writes:
The Research Administrator Recognition Award recognizes research administrators in any unit across campus, and honors exemplary service to the research community over a number of years.
Herrick has supported U-M faculty for 18 years, the past 11 focused on research administration.
As the research process senior manager at the School for Environment and Sustainability, Herrick plays a critical role in strengthening the school’s research operations, which involves managing two large center grants for the Cooperative Institute for Great Lakes Research and a collaborative science program for the National Estuarine Research Reserves.
Herrick represents the small schools and colleges in the Research Administration Advisory Council Executive Committee and the Research Administration Schools Committee, as well as being a member of the Research Administration Advisory Council Committee at Large and the Process Subcommittee.
She submitted 67 proposals on behalf of SEAS faculty during fiscal year 2019, which led to many innovative research projects that focus on protecting Earth’s resources and achieving a sustainable society.
