The monthly outstanding contributions recognition award(s), or monthly staff recognition award, is presented monthly to College of Arts and Sciences staff from all divisions (Social Sciences, Arts and Humanities and Natural Sciences)* in recognition and appreciation of outstanding performance, important contributions beyond official job responsibilities and other extraordinary and innovative work contributions to the college.

All College of Arts and Sciences Classified and University Staff may be nominated monthly for these awards through the nomination form. Nominations are accepted from fellow staff, faculty or students who have firsthand knowledge of the nominee's performance. The Divisional Dean will then make the final decision as to that month's winners and notify the award recipient directly.

Those who win will receive a maximum of 8 hours of Administrative time off, to be processed through regular payroll, not to exceed 8 hours per staff member per fiscal year.

The college and the Staff Advisory Committee also award the Employee of the Year Award, which is presented annually to College of Arts and Sciences staff in recognition and appreciation of an exceptional job performance.
