Brittany Krull Earns Professional Excellence in Service Nomination

Brittany Krull, Assistant Director of Student Success at Southwest Minnesota State University, has been recently honored as the SMSU nominee for the Minnesota State Colleges and Universities Board of Trustees Professional Excellence in Service Award.

“To be nominated for professional excellence and outstanding service is humbling,” Brittany said. “Across the system and especially at SMSU, there are many deserving individuals who commit to these standards every day, even going above and beyond.”

The award recognizes the key role that service faculty fulfill at Minnesota State’s universities in advising and counseling students; in the recruitment, retention and placement of students; in residential life programming, facilitation of student groups and student leadership; and other involvement in university and community activities. Each of the seven four-year institutions within the system may select one candidate.

Brittany is a Wood Lake, Minn. native and an SMSU alumna. She graduated in 2004 with a bachelor’s degree in art with a graphic design emphasis and a minor in marketing, and in 2009 with a master’s degree in education with a teaching, learning and leadership emphasis. Brittany has been employed at SMSU for over 12 years. She was an admission counselor for seven years before moving to the Office of Student Success.

Jan Loft: The Voice of Commencement

Jan Loft: The Voice of Commencement

The hardest working person the day before, and the day of, Commencement?

Dr. Jan Loft, Dean of the College of Arts, Letters and Sciences and since 1995 the “Voice of Commencement” at the University.

For years, Jan was a radio and communications professor, having arrived for a one-year fixed-term position in 1988-89. That led to a second fixed-term contract, which led to a probationary faculty position. Her talent was obvious. After a distinguished 29-year career, which saw her later move into administration as dean, she will retire at the end of June.

Prior to 1995, department chairs read the names of students in their area who were graduating. That changed in 1995, when Jan read every name to cross the stage. It’s been that way ever since.
