Congratulations to our outstanding senior, Guba, for being honored with the Kate Hevner Mueller Senior Award! Guba is a fourth year Collinsite who has been very involved in the community during her time at Collins and IU, both in student leadership positions and in her academics.
The Kate Hevner Mueller Outstanding Senior Award was created in 2013 to honor IU seniors who have proven leadership on campus inside and outside the classroom. Dr. Kate Hevner Mueller served as Indiana University Dean of Women from 1938–1949 and made a huge impact on the educational experience of women at IU. It was Dr. Mueller belief that a university should promote the intellect, develop the personality, and teach citizenship as well as leadership to all students.
Guba is pursuing a BA in Cognitive Science, a BA in Jewish Studies, and a minor in linguistics. She is the co-chair of the Board of Educational Programming, a Collins Q-instructor, the Director of the Midwest Undergraduate Cognitive Science Conference, one of the Co-Presidents of the Student Organization for Cognitive Science, a Student Manager at the College of Arts and Sciences Executive Dean’s Office, and a Research Assistant in the Learning, Education and Development Lab. She has contributed in many ways in these roles, but has been especially involved in helping to update and re-vamp the constitutions of many of the organizations she has participated in. Next year, Guba will be attending the University of Delaware in pursuit of a PhD in Learning Sciences.
The award named in Dr. Mueller’s honor goes to students who have left the campus better than they found it – and that is the perfect way to describe Guba’s efforts at Indiana University. Congratulations once again to Guba!
