Go to the Nomination Form for the Staff Impact Awards

The Staff Impact Awards celebrate those who champion volunteerism and service within the university — going above and beyond by taking on additional challenges. It honors staff who are wall-breakers and bridge-builders — people who find ways to collaborate across units and find solutions to make the workplace better for us all. It seeks to recognize staff, supervisors, and teams that make an impact with their work, locally and beyond. And it celebrates the innovative, as well as those who support flexibility in the workplace.

Presidential Recognition for Innovation 

In 2018 the President’s Staff Innovation Award Program was added to the Staff Impact Awards. This means there is a single nomination process for staff and teams to be eligible for Staff Impact Awards and presidential recognition for innovation, now called the President’s Staff Award of Distinction. Individual and team winners of the presidential award will be selected from nominations that best exhibit meeting criterion 5: "Outside the cube” innovations in process, product, method or systems.
