She safeguards the research safety practices for hundreds of members of the MIT community. Her training presentation is so effective, it’s been used as a model across the Institute.

One of her colleagues told us:

At MIT, Rosa is well known as a leader in emergency preparedness. She has diligently built a unified community where everyone has taken to heart the credo: emergency preparedness is everyone’s responsibility. In fact, her efforts have strengthened the overall sense of community across Building 46 and beyond. She has a selfless commitment to MIT citizenship that far exceeds the norm.”

Without further ado, let’s congratulate Rosa Liberman on her Excellence Award!
