Staff Achievement Awards

In 1989, the University initiated an awards and recognition program to appreciate staff members who have brought recognition to UA Little Rock through personal achievement, service to the University, and/or service to the community. A $1,000 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.

The 2018 Staff Awards Ceremony will be held at 10 a.m. Friday, April 20, in the Engineering and Information Technology Building Auditorium. Please join us as we recognize our employees for their service and contributions.

Nominations for the Staff Achievement Awards and applications for the Staff Senate Scholarships are open from Feb. 19 to March 19.

The three categories for Staff Achievement Awards are:

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

Ben Fry Service to UA Little Rock
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 specialty organizations/events.

Please take the time from your busy schedule to nominate a co-worker who is deserving of this recognition. We strongly recommend submitting a thorough recommendation letter since nominees will not be supporting their own nominations.
