Jackie Natividad

Fall 2009

12/1/2009


I am nominating: Jackie Natividad
Years of Service at Cal Poly: 5
Department: Student Affairs Administration
Position: Administrative Support

Why are you nominating this person? Why do you think he/she deserves the award?: Jackie Natividad is one of the few staff members in our division that has provided excellent administrative support to NUMEROUS management-level search committees. I have been honored to work with her directly on several of them! I know this might seem like a “small thing” to nominate someone for, but if you’ve never done it before, you can’t imagine how much work this adds to ones daily schedule. Jackie handles each search with professionalism and is a valued member of the search committee, because of the high quality of her work.

Please select 3 of the 6 Division of Student Affairs values for which your nominee best exemplifies: Integrity, Interconnectedness, Passion

Please share how your nominee exemplifies value #1: PASSION: Jackie has a great attitude. It was enjoyable to work with her on a search committee, even though there were hundreds of details to manage, new committee members to educate about the process, and numerous applications flooding her mailbox, she was enthusiastic about the process itself and about the potential new hires. Jackie quickly became our BlackBoard expert and on more than one occasion faculty committee members commented on the quality of her work and on "how organized she kept us."

Please share how your nominee exemplifies value #2: INTERCONNECTEDNESS:
Jackie anticipated what the committee members or human resources might need next and was always one step ahead of us to prepare documents, send out reminders, and ensures that the strict standards for hiring MPP's were maintained. She also made sure that our student committee member's schedules were consulted when setting meetings, so that they could fully participate in the process. Finally, when asked to help others learn how to serve as administrative support for search committees, she provided them with all the information and tools they needed to succeed.

Please share how your nominee exemplifies value #3: INTEGRITY: Jackie maintained the highest levels of confidentiality while she served on each of the committees. Jackie always had a positive attitude about working with human resources to ensure that we took our job of recruiting a diverse pool of candidates seriously. She sent in the contact information in a timely manner and she kept in touch with Carmen Munoz-Silva to get her all the information she needed to approve our pool of candidates.

In what way(s) does this person enhance or contribute to the Cal Poly Pomona campus community?: There are only a few administrative support people in our division that are tasked, over and over again, with providing administrative support to high-profile MPP searches. These searches are governed by very strict policies, procedures, and protocols. Jackie is one of these people. She handles the task with grace and professionalism. As the chairperson for several of these committees, I know that they would NOT have been as successful without her on our team.
