Tim Woodward, the Hajim School’s director of finance and administration, is being recognized for his work to guide the school through significant organizational changes. Woodward received the 2024 Edmund A Hajim Outstanding Staff Award.

“All who work with Tim appreciate his calm demeanor and positive attitude, as well as his incredible work ethic,” says Wendi Heinzelman, dean of the Hajim School of Engineering & Applied Sciences. “Tim's work has ensured that the Hajim Departments and the Hajim School have the financial resources necessary to succeed, and his continued work as we disentangle Hajim from the former Arts, Sciences and Engineering unit has been exceptional. It will help ensure that our departments and the Hajim School continue to thrive in the years ahead.”

Before joining the University in 2009, Woodward held roles as a senior financial analyst at General Electric and Xerox Corporation. He has served as director of finance and administration for the Hajim School since 2016.

Woodward supports the Dean’s Office and Hajim School departments with their finance and operations. Some of his duties include creating extensive yet concise dashboards for department annual reviews; managing Hajim accounts; working with departments on faculty and staff wage and salary adjustments; developing adjunct, department, and grad student budgets; working with departments on capital budget requests; and supporting all financial and operational matters for the Hajim School.

Woodward was instrumental in guiding the Hajim School through the Career Path Modernization process, a multi-year initiative to completely transform the University’s 40-year-old job structure. He worked tirelessly with Hajim School managers to support staff throughout this process.
