Jerry Joseph is the June Employee of the Month

Jerry Joseph, associate provost for budgeting and administrative planning, has been selected as the University of Illinois Springfield Employee of the Month for June 2017.

Working in the Provost’s Office, Joseph oversees the campus budget and is known for his commitment to the success of the institution. One nominator describes him as “transparent, precise, factual and unbiased.”

“Since taking on the daunting task of overseeing campus budgeting, he has been nothing short of amazing,” said a nominator. “His mastery of the ins and outs of the budgeting process is astounding given the short time he’s served in the position.”

During the Illinois budget crisis, Joseph has worked hard to assure the financial stability of the university. He is described by co-workers as being meticulous and always accurate.

“Jerry is not only very productive and hardworking, he is also dependable,” said a nominator. “I am amazed at how hard he works and is able to get things done.”

Joseph has also chaired numerous employee search committees and regularly volunteers to be part of campus and system-wide committees and task forces.

“I believe it was once said that the reward for good work… is even more work! That would certainly be the case for Jerry who completes every assignment with competence, efficiency and a quality result,” said a nominator.

Outside of UIS, Joseph is also heavily involved with his church, St. Joseph the Worker in Chatham.

“Jerry always treats others with respect, kindness and empathy,” said a nominator. “He never mistreats anyone and is always professional. Jerry is a true delight to work with.”
