Student Affairs Award Program
Student Affairs awards will be presented at the end of the academic year at the Spring Summit and are intended to recognize employees who have demonstrated excellence in performing their jobs as well as showing great teamwork and collaboration with others.
Any Student Affairs employee can submit a nomination form for someone they think should be considered for an award. Award nominations forms should be filled via our online submission form in Qualtrics or via email. All handwritten submissions should be fully completed and legible. All submissions are due to the Student Affairs HR Manager, electronic or via email, no later than the second week of April and should include the accomplishments of the employee that justify the award they are being nominated for. The nominee forms will be presented to a committee made up of employees who are not assigned to Student Affairs but may have knowledge of the Student Affairs mission. The HR Manager will also be part of the committee but only as the facilitator and serves as an ex officio member.
The Senior Vice-President of Student Affairs or his/her designee will present the Student Affairs awards at the Spring Summit.
