Rita Gray-Marsh

Office Support Associate

I have been a staff member in the Psychology Department for 25 years. My role here in the department over these years has been to ensure that everyone who comes through the front door of the Psychology Department feels welcome, and to do a range of things to ensure that they have what they need to do their work. During my time here, I have seen tens of thousands of undergrad students graduate with Bachelor’s degrees, and many of those undergrad students go on to grad school and/or good jobs.  I have seen hundreds of grad students come to the department to obtain their Ph.D. and go on to teach at different universities or work at hospitals and other places. I have met many professors from all walks of life, who come to UIC to teach and work with grad and undergrad students on their research. Many of them have retired of course, but some are still here, as well as many new professors.
