The University of Wisconsin-Whitewater honors two members of academic staff each year, one from the instructional/teaching ranks with the Excellence Award for Instructional Staff and the other from the non-instructional/service ranks with the Excellence Award for Non-Instructional Staff. Nominations are sought early in the second semester. The Academic Staff Awards Committee reviews the received nominations and selects a recipient for each Award. The Committee consists of four members, two teaching and two non-teaching. A member of the Academic Staff Assembly acts as the liaison/facilitator for the Committee. The recommendations of the Awards Committee are forwarded to the Academic Staff Assembly for review, approval, and publication. The approved recommendations are forwarded to the Chancellor who formally presents the Awards in May. The nominee reception is held in April at the Fern Young Terrace.
The Awards are limited to Academic Staff at the UW-Whitewater who are employed 50 percent of the time or more, and who have not received the Award in the preceding three years.
