Mabel Lee, History Graduate Advisor, Retires After 29 Years

This May, after 29 years of service as the Graduate Advisor in the Department of History, Mabel Lee decided it was time for the next chapter. Now, by all accounts, she is enjoying the start of her much-deserved retirement. Her efforts successfully shepherded generations of historians through the process of attaining their doctoral degree here at Berkeley. Her presence will be greatly missed by all—students, faculty, and staff—and we look forward to hearing about her new adventures in retirement bliss.

We are joined this month by our new Graduate Student Affairs Officer, Todd Kuebler. He comes to us with over 14 years of student services and graduate experience, both within the UC system and a Palo Alto institution of higher education (which shall not be named). Todd holds a BA in Political Science (in International Affairs) and an MS in Education (in College Student Development and Administration). When you are next in the halls of Dwinelle, please don't hesitate to reach out and say hello as he settles into the office and the department.
