It is with mixed emotions that the Deans Office announces Diane Benda has elected to retire from Michigan Tech effective July 1st. While we would love her to remain within the SBE, we know Diane has plans to spend more time with her family. As the Director of Administration, Diane has been the key hub between the central administration, the Deans Office, faculty, staff, alumni and students. Diane’s efficient performance of her job masks the enormous responsibilities and duties she performs on a regular basis. She has been vital to the SBE’s progress and accomplishments over her career.
The SBE held a retirement reception for Diane on May 1st. We wish her the best, and congratulate her on a well-earned retirement!
