Welcome Back to Nicole Whyte and Goodbye to Jacqueline Eiben

We’re pleased to announce that Nicole Whyte is returning to the University Libraries on April 15, to serve as executive assistant in the Administrative office.

Nicole will join us to help prepare the administrative office for transition, as Jacqueline Eiben will be leaving us in late May so she and her kids can join her soon-to-be husband in Olathe, KS. Nicole is an office professional with 20+ years of experience working for the University of Missouri. She holds a master’s degree in psychology, and she brings with her many years of experience as an executive assistant and HR support staff.

Nicole worked in the administrative office of the University Libraries as an HR specialist 2018-2021, before being relocated as part of the HR reorganization in 2021. She is delighted to return to the Libraries, and to be doing the type of work she loved doing for two schools here at MU before turning to HR work.

We are fortunate to bring Nicole back to the Libraries as someone who is already familiar with our organization. We’re looking forward to a smooth transition. Welcome back, Nicole!
