Nominations being accepted for Staff Quality Service Awards


Staff Quality Service Awards

Nominations are now being accepted for the Staff Quality Service Awards. The award honors staff members whose service to the university represents the highest standards of quality and effectiveness.  

Nominations should be based on performance in an officially recognized staff capacity for the present fiscal year. Submissions are due by 5 p.m. on May 27.


The nomination packet submitted  by the supervisor must contain:

  • Written endorsement by the supervisor.
  • Written endorsement by two colleagues, one of whom serves in a peer capacity.
  • Evidence of quality service performed over a period of time.  This may include a description of such service that would include considerations such as the level of innovation, the degree of initiative required, collaboration, and institutional impact, especially on students.
  • Supporting materials (emails, letters of commendation, documented outcomes [e.g., cost savings, operational efficiencies]).

Although consistent quality performance is given weight, this is not a lifetime achievement award. Consideration should be given as to how the individual's service enhances a university initiative by promoting collaboration and teamwork to support the institution's mission.

Recipients will receive their awards at the annual Academic Convocation in the fall. Recipients must still be employed at the time of Convocation to receive their awards.
