How many employees will be recognized?

How are recipients selected?

For each award category a committee is formed.  With the exception of the Adjunct Faculty and Part-Time Employee category, each committee is comprised entirely of employees in the respective award category (i.e. the support staff make up the Support Staff committee, etc.). The individual committees then review the nominations and recommend recipient(s) to the Board of Trustees for their approval.

Full-time recipients will receive an award stipend of $1000 (less appropriate taxes) while part-time employee recipents and adjunct faculty recipients will receive a $250 award (less appropriate taxes).
