Elena makes me feel valued because she is a caring full professor. She supports faculty, students, and staff. She listens and is conscious of everyone around her. She is also an excellent mentor to many people around her. It is very sad she is leaving the university this year for another school. She will be greatly missed.
Dr. Karpova is the rare person that can challenge you while building you up. She asks insightful questions that makes you consider your world viewpoint. Through her words and actions she shows you that we each have the opportunity and responsibility to make this world a better place than we discovered it.
