How will award recipients be recognized?
For each award category a committee is formed and chaired by the previous year’s recipient. With the exception of the Adjunct Faculty 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.
Are there any restrictions on who can receive an award?
All award recipients will have their names added to the Award of Excellence plaque that is displayed on campus. In addition, they will each be presented with an individual plaque during the End of the Year Employee reception in the spring. Full-time recipients will receive an award stipend of $1000 (less appropriate taxes) while part-time recipients will receive a $250 award (less appropriate taxes).
