CEE Staff Spotlight: Theresa Holloway

It’s nearly impossible to pass through the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering office without catching a glimpse of Theresa Holloway’s smiling face in office 1173B.

Since joining the CEE team in August 2014, Theresa’s laugh and warm hellos have helped brighten Glenn L. Martin Hall as she has taken on a critical role in the department office.

As CEE’s payroll coordinator, Theresa’s tasks range from assisting faculty members in getting new students on payroll to processing visa information for visitors. Additionally, Theresa serves as the benefits liaison, and is the point of contact for questions about benefits or payroll.

Theresa comes to us from the Department of Hearing & Speech Sciences where, in four years, she took on an array of responsibilities including managing a clinic and overseeing various tasks in the business office. » Read more

UMD Rental Car Discounts: What You Should Know

University of Maryland has discount car rental rates with several companies. It is very important to use the corporate rates when traveling, as these rates already include the collision damage waiver (CDW)/loss damage waiver (LDW) insurance. This means that, when using the UMD discount rates, you should waive any additional coverage. Customers should also make sure to write "University of Maryland" on the rental agreement, along with their own name. 

The University of Maryland provides corporate discount car rental rates for faculty and staff with four companies: Avis, Budget, Enterprise and National. » Read more

Coming Soon: CEE Conference Room Reservation Website 

Later this week, a new CEE Conference Room Reservation Request website will be posted to the CEE page. This website will allow CEE faculty and staff to submit room reservation requests for 1179 Glenn L. Martin Hall and 0147K Engineering Laboratory Building via an Outlook calendar link.

Only CEE faculty and staff will have the ability to add reservation blocks to the calendar during available time slots. Designated CEE staff will oversee the calendar and will accept or respond to any reservation requests submitted.

Non-CEE faculty and staff will be able to use the CEE Conference Room Reservations website to submit their room requests via a Wufoo form.

Further details and instructions for the CEE Conference Room Reservation Requests website will be made available during the CEE Faculty & Staff meeting scheduled for Feb. 11. Please email with any questions following the launch of the page.

UM Fit Crew Kicks It into Gear 

UMD Fit Crew CEE Director of Undergraduate Student Services Al Santos recently started a fitness group called UM Fit Crew, which meets at Cole Field House every Tuesday and Thursday from 12:00-1:00 p.m.

Inspired by the November Project—a fitness movement launched in Boston as a way to stay in shape during the cold New England months—Al started UM Fit Crew to promote good health habits and peer support within the Clark School community.

While some participants in the group run the stairs or the Cole track, others use the hour to squeeze in a solid walk to break up the work day.

“Everyone goes at their own pace, so there is no pressure whatsoever,” Al said.

After each session, the group gathers together for a photo to celebrate their progress.

UM Fit Crew is open to all faculty, staff and students at the University of Maryland. Please be sure to contact Al with any questions.
