The University Staff Senate Recognition and Excellence Committee has worked this year to find new ways to recognize “outstanding performance” and “good deeds.” We believe we have found a way in the formation of a “Staff Senate Spirit Award,” which is meant to recognize employees who exhibit our Jesuit ideal of “men and women for others.” The award will be bestowed each month to a deserving nominee recommended by our campus community.
If you witness a staff member offering excellent performance of their duties or care above expectations, please recommend this individual for this award. You can use this link to obtain a recommendation card.
The card may be completed online and forwarded to firstname.lastname@example.org. You could also print it out and send it to Hayes’ office as listed on the reverse of the card. In addition, Spirit Nominating Cards will be available to Facilities Operations and University Police personnel through their chains of command.
The Staff Senate Recognition and Excellence Committee will review and vet the nominees each month. We will randomly pick one nominee from the vetted group who will be the winner of that month.
The award, in addition to recognition on the Web, entitles the individual to a Parking Pavilion reserved parking space for one month in a prime location. An alternate award will be given to those without parking passes.
We hope you will join the Staff Senate in recognizing and nominating employees and share our excitement for giving individuals the opportunity to be acknowledged for their outstanding efforts on behalf of our campus community. The nominations must be submitted by the 26 of each month prior to the award.
The first recipient will be selected by May 1 and will be recognized at the Staff Senate luncheon on May 15.
