Bev Konzem came to the History Department in October 2012, after being in another School of Humanities department for almost 29 years. Over this period of time she has had the opportunity to work with many fine Rice professors and students, both graduate and undergraduate. She often states that she may not know the answer, but she’ll know who knows the answer. Bev supports the department chair and handles the finances in the department. She also processes all human resource paperwork, handles the faculty promotion and tenure cases, searches (faculty and staff), and evaluations (staff), among other duties. Bev works closely with both department coordinator and graduate administrator to ensure that the department runs smoothly.
