Employee Spotlights

Carol Shieh

Associate Professor

My working experience at IUSON and IUPUI has been like opening a large gift box in which there is a smaller box, and then a smaller box within that gift. Opening each gift increases my excitement and curiosity. At IUSON, I find myself surrounded with gifts–mentors, collaborators, experts, students, administrative and staff support, technologies, and internal grants. These have led to new gifts such as relationships, scholarships, and opportunities. While I am busy opening each gift given to me, I realize I am a gift in a box, too—bring enthusiasm and encouragement to others and help create a positive work environment where diversity, innovation, and creativity are possible. I enjoy working here because I am excited to see what is in the next box. I think you will, too.
