Michael Oakes said about Laura Lee Wetzel:
"Laura Lee's professional life in the past nearly two years has been all about change. She moved into administration of the MBA program full time in June 2010 while being asked to still keep a hand on things in Executive Education through that office's transition away from the Division of Business. She then helped transition the MBA program from a traditional curriculum to an integrated, modular curriculum. At the same time, Laura Lee was asked to participate in an overhaul of MBA recruiting and admissions, leading to learning and using new technology systems, new management processes, and new tracking and reporting requirements.
All along, Laura Lee has been the cornerstone for international student issues in the MBA program. This year, she initiated and organized IUPUC's own EAP courses so that international graduate students could complete their admission requirements here in Columbus.
And whenever an employer or IUPUC alumnus thinks of engaging IUPUC, Laura Lee is often the first person they contact. In return, she is often the first person to jump up to serve them with the kind of "welcoming" professionalism they expect of our university."
