Name: Tyler Payne

Position/Department: Operations Assistant/Office of Financial Aid

How long have you been at UR? I am fairly new to the University. I will celebrate my one year anniversary on May 10th!

What should everyone know about your role or department? My job within the Office of Financial Aid consists of a few different responsibilities. I help to facilitate the intake of financial aid application materials, as well as, manage and train our student assistants. Financial aid plays a key role in the admission process for new students and the retention of currently enrolled students. Revealing financial information can be difficult for many families, but this vulnerability helps me and our students be able to make a lasting, positive impression of UR. I truly believe my job is to set the tone of the office, which we love to keep fun, light, and always positive.

What is something fun or a unique fact about you? I have run three half-marathons in three different states and intend to run a race in all 50 states.
