DAYTON, Ohio—Lori Metivier has received the Wright State University President’s Award for Excellence in Leadership. The award is presented each year by the president of Wright State University to a staff member who has provided leadership in support of the university’s mission. Metivier serves as a grants and contract specialist in the Wright State University Boonshoft School of Medicine’s Center for Global Health Systems, Management and Policy.
Metivier served first as an administrative assistant when the Wright State University Center for Global Health was launched, then as a grants and contract specialist and most recently as program coordinator for the second largest Master of Public Health (M.P.H.) degree program in Ohio.
She coordinated the interviewing and hiring of additional faculty needed for the launch of the M.P.H. degree program and provided close administrative supervision during the beginning of the dual-degree master’s programs for medical students.
“Lori is exemplary of what President Hopkins encourages us all to be,” said Tami Smith, programs facilitator in the Office of the Registrar. “She works to make this the best institution of higher learning by assisting fellow employees, faculty and students to achieve success, grow professionally and to do so with the best use of the resources at hand.”
Metivier has been the operational manager for annual conferences on health systems management and public health for the last decade and has served as an important catalyst in the recent integration of the Center for Global Health and the Center for Healthy Communities.
