These awards recognize members of the UW-W University Staff for their work and involvement on campus. Two recipients will be selected from the nominees. The University Staff Council Employee Recognition Committee will review nominations received by the deadline of January 26, 2018.


Individuals must be members of the UW-Whitewater University Staff (former Classified Staff). If you're not sure if the person you'd like to nominate is University Staff or not, please call Human Resources at x1024 or by email. Give them the employee's name and ask what that person's class is. If the person is Faculty/Academic Staff (including non-instructional), please visit the Academic Staff Awards Information page for more information.

Award presentations will be made to the selected recipients. Details will be available closer to the event date.
