Exemplary Employee Award

What is the Exemplary Employee Award?

Each year, regular full and part-time employees are chosen to receive exemplary awards. Immediate supervisors or fellow employees may nominate individuals to receive awards by completing and submitting the nomination form to the Human Resources Department. Recipients who have received the award in the last five years are not eligible. Nominations will be accepted until January 5, 2018. The President’s Council will meet to consider the nominations and make a final determination of those who will be honored by the University.
