Tailyn Walborn

Mallory-Wilson Center
Pre-Health Professions Advisor
Faculty/Staff Recognition Award - 2020

Working at the Mallory-Wilson Center is great because I like to come up with new ideas to reach students. We're funded and supported by alumni, so we have more flexibility. If I’m interested in focusing on networking or the mental health of our students, the alumni are excited and want to see a proposal.”

Matthew McMurray

Department of Psychology
Faculty/Staff Recognition Award - 2019

The level of involve­ment that he encourages in his lab and the level of independence this entails is nearly unmatched at Miami. Many of us will work 15-20 hours a week on our independent projects, allowing us to gain an immense depth of experience as undergraduates.
