Nominations for USS Awards

It is the time of year to recognize the great work of our University Support Staff. Two of the programs need immediate action now!!

1) Departmental/Unit Employee of the Year Award and Recognition Program ($300)

The COA (and KSRE) award nominations must come to Dorothy Doan in the Dean and Director's office from your Department/Unit by February 9, 2018. Please use the link below to send in your award nominations.

A committee appointed by the Dean and Director will determine the two COA (and KSRE) winners. If you submitted the name of a great University Support Staff person last year and they were not recognized, please consider resubmitting their nomination this year, with some new details.

The winners' names will be forwarded to the University Support Staff Senate to be recognized as Departmental/Unit Employees of the Year at the University Support Staff Employee Recognition Ceremony on April 18, 2018.
