IT Employee Recognition Program

The IT Employee Recognition Program is designed to acknowledge two staff members (non MPP) per semester who have demonstrated outstanding service. The Division of IT recognizes that without our talented staff, we cannot deliver the excellent service and support that is required by the campus.

This is a peer-to-peer recognition program for current full time IT staff. Each award recipient will receive a tangible gift along with a recognition plaque. An employee may only receive the award once in a 3-year period.

The tangible gift and plaque are presented to the recipient of the award at the Fall IT All Hands Meeting and Spring IT All Hands Meeting.



IT staff members (non-MPP) who have direct knowledge of the nominee’s work should make nominations. The IT Recognition Program is aligned with our IT Statement:



The Division of Information Technology strives to be a strategic, innovative, and best-in-class IT organization that provides a leading-edge technology environment for students, faculty, and staff to advance the University’s mission, vision, and goals. We empower our students to become digital citizens and to utilize immersive technology in curricular and co-curricular instruction.


We advance the vision and goals of our University by contributing to educational innovation and providing agile, cost-effective, and reliable technology services and facilities to our campus community.
