After working in URGO for 6 and ½ years, Kirsten O’Brien will be leaving Augsburg to take a position as Grants Management Associate with the Margaret A. Cargill Philanthropies. Students, faculty and staff who have worked with Kirsten in her role as URGO’s Undergraduate Research, Graduate School and National Fellowships Specialist are keenly aware of the considerable gifts Kirsten brought to every interaction and every task. Her attention to quality and supportive nature helped Augsburg students and alums reach their goals of attaining off-campus summer research, graduate school or national fellowship placements. Her considerable planning skills insured near-flawless Z events, Court Agre Summer Research Symposiums and URGO’s Summer Research Programs.
URGO will be hosting an open house in Kirsten’s honor in the URGO/McNair/STEM Programs suite (Hagfors 101) next Wednesday, May 1st from 2:00 to 4:30. Come by for cake and refreshments and to wish Kirsten well on her next career venture.
