Rising Star Award.

Congratulations to Tamara Sweet, Registrar Services Officer – Articulation at the University of Northern British Columbia, and winner of BCCAT’s Rising Star award!

Tamara is being recognized for her dedicated efforts to support and advance transfer both at UNBC and across the BC Transfer System. A key example has been her involvement with BCCAT’s Transfer Credit System testing and UNBC’s Transfer Credit Database project (including the import of UNBC’s external equivalencies into BCCAT’s TCS Suite). Check out the video below for more information about Tamara and her award.

“Her dedication and interest in the transfer credit process and the possibilities it presents for improving student success at UNBC and in the province are represented by her actions and enthusiasm as she works in this field. She is clearly working towards being one of the new leaders in both knowledge and action in this area.

Leading projects and working as part of a team, Tamara is always a contributor, with good ideas that consider context, participants and fiscal realities. She is always polite and professional. She can work the details and the concepts easily and is self-motivated to learn and understand more regarding her role as Articulation officer.

She works hard to ensure there is understanding in the teams she is involved with and she works hard to clarify and develop her understanding of other perspectives. She is coachable and competent. She is able to manage change and ensure processes are sustainable and consistent. She is demonstrating abilities and competencies that are relevant to emerging leaders in thought and action. She is an excellent candidate for this award.”- Bert Annear, Registrar, UNBC
