MET CS Program Administration Director Wins BU’s 2020 Perkins Award for Distinguished Service
Kim Crosta was recently honored with an Award Ceremony for the Perkins Award for Distinguished Service. Ms. Crosta originally received the award in 2020, but no ceremony has been held the past two years due the pandemic. Below is the announcement originally posted in 2020. Congratulations again!
Kim Crosta (Questrom’08, MET’14), director of program administration for BU MET’s Department of Computer Science, is among one of three winners of BU’s 2020 Perkins Award for Distinguished Service.
An annual staff recognition for exceptional service to the University, Distinguished Service Award honorees are nominated by faculty. Dubbed a “magician” by one colleague, Ms. Crosta is celebrated for her ability to forge community between MET computer science students and department faculty. She also tests systems and technologies, created an all-new student orientation and internship program, works to connect students with potential employers, and leads operations on the department’s website.
“Academia is an ever-changing field, especially when your focus is computer science,” she told BU Today. “It is fascinating to be a part of that process and to learn from [faculty] about the changes that are occurring.”
