2010 All Award Winners2009 - Jim Murphy

Jim Murphy is a facilities engineer in the facilities management department. Murphy has served the UWRF campus for nearly 30 years, has successfully brought the University Center to completion and has overseen construction of the Dairy Learning Center and the renovation of the Wall Amphitheater.

Mike Stifter, director of facilities management, noted that Murphy “has developed positive relationships not only on campus, but also beyond the borders of campus. From contractors to division of state facilities and UW System staff, Jim is highly regarded for his work and commitment. It would not be an embellishment to say that Jim has likely managed $75 million in campus projects over the years--everything from rooftops and walks to major building projects and asbestos abatement--Jim has guided the work with a conscientious approach. Students, faculty, staff, and guests benefit on a daily basis from Jim's contributions.”
