The Serving Our Community honorees who we are about to meet have four things in common.

  • They continually work to enhance their level of service,
  • They bring a solutions-oriented approach to every challenge,
  • They forge productive collaborations, and
  • They serve as role models to their colleagues.

Our first recipient is Mahnaz El-Kouedi, the Director of Academic Administration in the Program in Media Arts and Sciences in the School of Architecture and Planning. Mahnaz  has contributed at a profound level to the MAS community, providing cohesion, clarity, and compassion at a tumultuous time. She’s been a primary force in transforming MAS into an exemplary academic program.  

One colleague wrote, “She has had such a positive impact, while always exercising good judgment, positivity, warmth, and fairness. This award is a testament to how special she is and how invaluable her contributions are to our entire community.”
