Approach to Recognition & Engagement
In recognition of the positive impact of our staff and faculty, the University offers an array of awards and recognition opportunities. Annual staff awards are part of our formal recognition strategy where individual or team accomplishments can be nominated for an award based on pre-defined criteria. In addition to the annual awards, the True Blue Recognition Platform provides the opportunity to informally recognize small victories and day-to-day accomplishments in real time.Recognition Best Practices
