Much Expected

Staff Spirit Award / The Meg Cullen-Brown Magis Award

In the formation of a Staff Senate Spirit Award, renamed The Meg Cullen-Brown Magis Award, The University of Scranton Staff Senate has found a way to honor 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. 

Magis Award recommendations can be made by completing the nomination card and forwarding it to You could also print it out and send to Peggy at her office in Louis Brown Hall 401.  In addition, nomination cards will be available to Facilities Operations and University Police personnel through their supervisory chains of command. 

The Staff Senate Recognition and Excellence Committee will review the nominees each month and award the deserving employee.

The award in addition to recognition, entitles the individual to a certificate for $50 worth of complimentary food at our fabulous University food service outlets and a reserved parking space for their award month in the Parking Pavilion. Each monthly winner is also invited to the Senate Recognition luncheon in May to receive a certificate of appreciation.

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.

Congratulations to Our Recipients & Nominees!
