Jane Federowicz, Assistant Vice President for Human Resources at Rosemont College, Receives CUPA-HR’s Donald E. Dickason Award

Jane Federowicz, head of human resources at Rosemont College, has received the College and University Professional Association for Human Resources (CUPA-HR) 2016 Donald E. Dickason Award. CUPA-HR’s highest honor, this award is named for the association’s founder and recognizes an individual for exceptional leadership and service to CUPA-HR. Thanks to the generous support of TIAA-CREF, CUPA-HR is pleased to offer a $3,000 contribution to Rosemont College’s endowment or a scholarship fund of Federowicz’s choice.

Over the past 12 years, Federowicz has made significant contributions to CUPA-HR. She was elected to the association’s Eastern Region board of directors in 2004 and served as chair in 2006-07. She was also active for several years in CUPA-HR’s Eastern Pennsylvania/Delaware Chapter, serving as co-chair from 2003-2006 and as interim president in 2007-08. In 2006, she joined the national board of directors and served as treasurer for seven years. Federowicz has also served on a number of CUPA-HR committees and task forces, including the mentoring task force, the awards committee and the membership committee. As chair of the association’s dues task force, she led the charge on restructuring the association’s membership dues structure, which made membership more accessible to smaller, less well-funded colleges and universities. She was also instrumental in building and strengthening the association’s relationships with several corporate partners throughout the years.

CUPA-HR is higher ed HR. We serve higher education by providing the knowledge, resources, advocacy and connections to achieve organizational and workforce excellence. Headquartered in Knoxville, Tennessee, and serving more than 20,000 HR professionals and other campus leaders at more than 1,900 member organizations around the country and abroad, the association offers learning and professional development programs, higher education salary and benefits data, extensive online resources and just-in-time regulatory and legislative information.
