Grants and Awards

The Academic Staff Assembly supports two types of awards – the Excellence Awards for Academic Staff, and the Non-Instructional Rewards and Recognition.

The Academic Staff Excellence award cycle occurs in early spring; nominations for the Excellence Award for Instructional Academic Staff and for the Excellence Award for Non-Instructional Academic Staff are due to the Assembly Chair in mid-February.

Nominations for Non-Instructional Rewards and Recognition are due the first Monday in March. The Rewards and Recognition are open to non-teaching academic staff only and may include a one-time cash bonus of $250. The Academic Staff Assembly also oversees the Staff Development Grant application process. These grants support individual professional training opportunities that contribute to meeting the needs of the institution.
