Awards Recognition

The Division of Student Affairs Awards Program is a way to honor individuals who best exemplify the guiding principles of our Division. It is the unique combination of people and passion that helps power our university and we are pleased to recognize outstanding achievements by members of our Division and those who contribute to it.  


Nominees must demonstrate pride and excellence in work and display an enthusiastic/inspiring attitude toward their responsibilities and the people they serve. They show a “students first” commitment to students through service on committees, actions that support their unit, our Division and university values, and/or engaging in collaborative efforts across the university. Nominees should contribute toward job excellence with performance that is consistently outstanding and frequently outside the normal scope of prescribed duties and that demonstrates independent action and resourcefulness, encouraging new ideas and creativity and exhibiting leadership qualities.

The Division of Student Affairs is a complex organization providing a wide-range of staffing levels and various categories of staff.  Nominations can be from any Student Affairs employee. Self-nominations are permitted, however a signature of support from a direct supervisor is required for self-nominations.
