Shirley Meyers joined the iSchool in July as grants and contracts coordinator. In her position, she will perform pre- and post-award administrative functions related to sponsored research projects.

"The grants and contracts coordinator position aligns with my passion and decades of professional experience in higher education institutions," said Meyers. "It also offers an excellent avenue to take on more challenging responsibilities while constantly learning and striving to grow.
