Dr. Rowena Ramnath
This past fall Dr. Rowena Ramnath was recognized with one of the Division’s Distinguished Performance Awards for Team Player.
The Team Player Award recognizes an individual or group who works exceptionally well with others, both within the department and throughout the FIU community. This individual or group possesses a willingness to collaborate and tends to be more concerned about getting the job accomplished rather than receiving the credit.
Dr. Ramnath serves the University as a psychologist with the Department of Counseling and Psychological Services. Her nominator states that Rowena “personifies the consummate counselor” and team player. She is always willing to collaborate with others, and her efforts have strengthened outreach with several other departments. This is evident in her collaborative programs with Student Conduct and Conflict Resolution, presenting multiple workshops to faculty and staff on “dealing with disruptive students”. Rowena also took the lead in crafting an anger management workshop, available to FIU students at no cost. Dr. Ramnath is viewed by colleagues as supportive and professional. She is a true pleasure to have as part of our Division team.
We are proud to have Dr. Rowena Ramnath as part of our team in the Division of Student Affairs.
