Maria Chavez
Department Assistant
Departments of Romance Languages and Literatures, South Asian Languages and Civilzations, and Slavic Languages and Literatures

What do you like most about your job?
I enjoy working with diverse departments—Romance Languages and Literatures, South Asian Languages and Civilzations, and Slavic Languages and Literatures—and helping the students and faculty with whatever they need for their research. I also enjoy designing posters, creating event digests, and planning receptions with my colleagues to maintain a sense of community.

What was the last good book you read?
Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman.

You might work with me if ...
… you need information about upcoming events, want to cross list a course, or need help with reimbursements.

If you could go anywhere for summer vacation where would you go and why?
I’d love to visit Prague for its café culture and beautiful architecture.
