New Staff Announcement: Amanda Gill
January 26, 2024
The UC Berkeley Nuclear Engineering Department is excited to announce our new Student Services Advisor Amanda Gill.
For the past seven years, Amanda has served as the Associate Director for the Evening & Weekend MBA Program at the Haas School of Business. There, Amanda excelled in areas of academic advising, project & curricular management, and program leadership, ensuring smooth operations and an enriching experience for approximately 300 graduate students at any given time. Prior to joining Haas, Amanda served as a Program Coordinator for the UC Berkeley Extension.
Her many years of service are rife with acknowledgement for the exceptional work she's done guiding students. In addition to numerous Spot Awards, Amanda received an Outstanding Team Advising award in December 2016 and Outstanding Advisor award in December 2022, both of which were bestowed by the UC Berkeley Excellence in Advising Awards program. Amanda also received the Haas Outstanding Staff Award in May 2023.
Amanda's ties to Cal go back further than her close to 12 years as a staff member, having earned both a Bachelor of Arts in English and Master of Arts in Global Studies from UC Berkeley.
When Amanda isn't doing great work for the university and its students, she's an avid traveler, with visits to over 35 countries and all seven continents (most recently Antarctica in December 2022).
