Gail Winter, assistant director of the International Studies Office, received a Cardinal Achievement Award in July for “going above and beyond the call of duty” by proctoring an exam in the middle of the night. The exam was being given in Madrid, Spain at 9 a.m., and the course’s professor required that a student at Wesleyan, who needed to take the text, be given the exam at the same time – 3 a.m., due to the time difference.

This special honor comes with a $150 award and reflects the university’s gratitude for those extra efforts.

Award recipients are nominated by department chairs and supervisors. Nominations can be made anytime throughout the year.
