The Notable UT Woman Award recognizes a female faculty or staff member, student, or alumna whose accomplishments bring great distinction to the university.
Ann Robinson-Craig joined the College of Arts and Sciences in 1992 as budget director. Being a young mother, she thought the position would be less demanding than a job with a busy accounting company. She was very wrong—but that didn’t stop her from growing into her role and expanding it in the years that followed. Robinson-Craig works closely with each college department during end-of-year closeouts, a process that has given her keen insight on how to stretch a dollar and where to find more resources. She has also become one of the college’s most experienced human resources specialists. She assists with hiring and encourages all staff to further their education. When she sees potential, she encourages employee development and growth within the university.
