Rosen College
Internal Awards and Honors

Annually, Rosen College recognizes exemplary faculty, staff and associates with an Employee of the Year award.  We congratulate those awardees who were nominated and recognized for this honor.

Award Criteria:
The Rosen College Awards Committee accepts nominations and select three individuals who will receive Employee of the Year Award in the categories of (1) Faculty members (including all full-time faculty members) (2) Staff members (including Office of Student Services, Office of Internship, Events and Catering, Technology, Administrative Assistants, Finance & Administrative Services, and Public Relations) and (3) Associate members (including Undergraduate Admissions, Experiential Learning, Career Services, Financial Aid, Counseling Services, Student Accessibility Services, Student Life, Housing, Health Services, Library, Development, Alumni Relations, Bookstore, and Facilities Operations).

These awards will be in the form of $2,500 cash awards for staff and associate recipients and a travel package worth $2,500 for the faculty recipient. The committee will be charged to select the awardee in each category based on primarily three qualities: (1) professionalism, (2) service orientation, and (3) above and beyond the call of duty.
