Remembering Dr. Ginger Levin

Dr. Ginger LevinWe are saddened to report the untimely death of Dr. Virginia (Ginger) Levin on November 15, 2018.

Dr Levin was a widely respected and recognized scholar in project management during her 50 year career in the field. The author of over 20 books, she also received regular invitations to speak at Project Management Institute (PMI®) events, including 23 of its flagship Congress events. Ginger’s longtime record of service to PMI earned her the highly competitive Eric Jenett Project Management Excellence Award in 2016, which “recognizes and honors an individual who has made outstanding contributions to the project management profession or its practice through leadership, technical project management, and strategic and business management acumen.”

Deserving similar recognition is Dr. Levin’s longtime teaching career at UW-Platteville. Beginning in 2002, she anchored the program as an instructor, course developer, and strategic resource. Most of those years she served in the key position of capstone instructor, working one-to-one with students in the final phase of their degree journeys. Ginger was a terrific role model and mentor for the hundreds of students whose lives she touched — perhaps her most important legacy.
