Staff Achievement Awards

In 1989, the University initiated an awards and recognition program to appreciate staff members who have brought recognition to UALR through personal achievement, service to the University, and/or service to the community. A $1,000.00 cash award is given to the top employee in each category. The recipients are chosen by an objective screening committee. Eligible employees are full-time regular classified and non-faculty/non-classified employees holding no academic rank (must be eligible for Staff Senate).

The three categories for nominations are:

Personal Growth
Recognition will go to an individual whose scholarship, research or creative talent has been particularly outstanding.

Service to UALR
Recognition will go to an individual who is distinctive in service through committees, special events, implementation of creative ideas or support and encouragement of others.

Community Service
Recognition will go to an individual who has been particularly successful in organizing community events or had major achievements in civic, service, or speciality organizations/events.

The awards will be presented at the Annual Staff Awards Ceremony on April 16, 2014 at 10:30a in the DSC Ledbetter Assembly Halls.

We strongly recommend submitting a thorough recommendation letter since nominees will not be supporting their own nominations.

Please take the time from your busy schedule to nominate a co-worker who is deserving of this recognition.
