Regents University Staff Excellence Award Nominations

Nominating someone for the Regents University Staff Excellence Award is your opportunity to highlight the qualities of our outstanding staff, and you are strongly encouraged to submit a nomination in each category listed below. Nominations are due June 25, 2021.

The purpose of the Regents University Staff Excellence Award is to recognize the dedicated work, vital services, initiative, and outstanding contributions of the UW System’s university staff.

  • Individual Awards: Two awards of $7,500 each will be made to university staff members in recognition of their exceptional service to the university. The funds for these awards are designated to support professional development or other activities approved by the recipients that enhance a university program or function.
  • Program Award: One award of $7,500 will be made to a program staffed primarily by university staff in recognition of the important role played by university staff in supporting the UW System mission, priorities, or programs. The funds for the program award are designated to support program enhancements such as the staff recipients’ professional development or program-related supplies and expenses, or for other activities approved by the recipients that enhance a university program or function.

A Board of Regents awards committee will select the recipients, who will be publicly recognized at an awards presentation during one of the Board’s meetings. In addition, all nominees will be recognized by the Board of Regents and in UW System announcements and press releases.
