Stephanie Fiely, Director of Student Life at the University of Pittsburgh at Titusville, has been named recipient of the prestigious Chancellor's Staff Award in the Community Engagement category.

The Community Engagement Award was created to recognize a staff member who has dedicated themselves to making their community a better place to live and to improving the quality of life for others.  Stephanie’s work has had a far-reaching impact on the Titusville community.  Stephanie has worked diligently to ensure that students at Pitt-Titusville gain an appreciation for the importance of community service through programs such as the YWCA Week Without Violence, Fall Festival, and Easter Egg Hunt; the Race Against Racism; and Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service events. She has also demonstrated a strong and sustained commitment to a number of organizations through her service on the Boards of the Titusville YWCA, the United Way of the Titusville Region, the Titusville Area Chamber of Commerce Marketing and Promotions Committee, and the Titusville Rotary.

The Committee was also impressed by the work she has done on the Pitt-Titusville Cultural Arts Committee and the Stand Up Together Committee. Professor Meredith Kenyon said “Stephanie’s  work on the Cultural Arts Committee is vital to both the campus and the community: "Dancers, musicians, poets, and speakers present material that enriches the lives of our students and our community members because of the work she does."

Stephanie’s will be honored at an event in Pittsburgh later this month and her name will be added to a plaque displayed in the William Pitt Student Union inscribed with the names of all recipients of the Chancellor’s Awards.

Stephanie currently resides in Titusville with her husband Chris.
