May 23, 2016
The graduate students in ARE selected Heidi Schweizer to receive the 2016 Scott McNiven Community Service Award. Heidi has been very dedicated to the ARE community. As a prelim coordinator, she also set up the prelim dropbox for her fellow students’ convenience. Heidi chaired the 2016 annual Giannini Foundation of Agricultural and Resource Economics Student Conference (GARESC), which brought together Ph.D. students from the UC Davis, Berkeley and Riverside campuses in an open forum to present their papers and discuss ongoing research. She welcomes new students and she organizes social events to brings all the ARE graduate students together.
An ARE graduate student who nominated Heidi for the Scott McNiven award said, "As a senior student in our department, Heidi is always there for help when the first year students need academic or personal help. She is a role model for me personally, who has been trying her best to balance personal and academic life." Heidi exemplifies many of the endearing traits that made Scott a beloved and highly valued member of our department.
