Bill Abler is November EOM

Dr. Bill Abler, chair of the Department of Human Development Counseling, is known for a calm and soothing demeanor, and often appears unfazed and even-tempered in any situation he's in. That calmness was on full display when he walked into a room full of friends and colleagues who were there to surprise him with the news that he had been named the University of Illinois Springfield Employee of the Month for November 2014. Though calm and collected, he did, however, take a moment to recognize the amount of "deception" that went into keeping this honor a secret from him.

Bill's nominator made note of his kindness and his consideration for students and faculty. He treats people with respect; he is collaborative in his approach to solutions for the department, and his faculty trusts him. Bill's supervisor describes Bill as gracious and kind with a 'can do' attitude and a great sense of humor.

"Dr. Abler's dedication to the department and the university is tireless," his supervisor writes. "He continually makes himself available to his students, colleagues, and administration. His work ethic, selflessness, and work output make him invaluable to CEHS."
