When we set out to start this program, I couldn't imagine the impact it would have, and frankly it would likely not *exist* without Rachel's care and love for the program.

Rachel Burcin is a true gem. She is extremely diligent in the multitude of jobs she performs and goes out of her way to make the rest of our jobs easier, by taking on much of the burden herself.

Rachel is simply outstanding: the School of Computer Science is dramatically better for her efforts. Students lives are touched, our programs are getting a broader and more diverse set of students, and our international impact is tremendously enhanced.

Rachel’s personal and professional qualities make her stand out among all others. She is honest, sincere, hard-working, reliable, very friendly and helpful to all she encounters, and smart in how she accomplishes her work. She constantly strives to learn more and embraces challenges. Rachel’s caring nature and strong sense of citizenship is obvious to anyone who has known her (and experienced her hallway hugs!). One of the many outstanding traits that Rachel has, that in particular benefits students, is her ability to lift other people’s spirits. SCS is a better place with Rachel Burcin here. She evokes a humanity and level of excellence that makes everyone better for it.
