Member Spotlight: Monica Huffman

After more than 24 years of service to the University of Central Missouri, Monica Huffman will retire on April 1, 2024, from her role as the Executive Assistant to the President/Assistant Secretary to the Board of Governors. Throughout this time, Monica has been an active member of NAPAHE, serving on many committees and holding leadership roles including Chair of the Board of Directors and Chair of the Conference Planning Committee.

We asked Monica to share some quick takes on her career.

Most triumphant career accomplishment:
Consecutively serving four university presidents

Three things always on my desk:

  1. A copy of our state's Sunshine Law;
  2. A copy of our Board policies manual; and,
  3. A copy of Other Duties as Assigned.

Advice to a newbie:
Tap into the wealth of knowledge within NAPAHE by relying on your network of experienced professionals.

Monica's dedicated support to both NAPAHE and UCM is greatly appreciated, and we wish her all the best in retirement!
