This year, the Staff Senate will host a virtual Staff Appreciation Event on May 10. We are celebrating Augsburg staff in several ways:
– We are now accepting nominations to honor outstanding staff and outstanding newcomers at Augsburg. Here is a link to the nomination form: https://forms.gle/Lg8T2b6B5WLeiDZz8
– Nominations for the Outstanding Staff and Newcomer Awards will be accepted through April 9th. Nominations are welcomed from any current member of the campus community – staff, faculty, or students.
– We are also inviting Augsburg staff to tell us: what are you proud of this year? Did you pick up a new hobby, accomplish a difficult task, or just make it through a challenging year? Share your story with the Augsburg community by filming a short (less than 1 minute) video that will be featured during the Staff Appreciation Event. Videos can be submitted through this link: https://forms.gle/Ha5vZM36kx1dNQp37
The Staff Appreciation Program is intended to recognize staff members who have made an important contribution to the campus community over the past year. Recipients of the Outstanding Staff Award provide exceptional service to others, work collaboratively across divisions or departments, demonstrate a clear commitment to equity and inclusion, and enhance the objectives of their department and the mission of Augsburg University through creativity, innovation, and hard work.
The Newcomer Award recognizes a staff person who has made a significant impact on campus life in a short amount of time. Staff who have been at Augsburg for two years or less (as of March 1, 2021) are eligible to receive this award.
Staff Senate will award five Outstanding Staff awards and one Newcomer award during the virtual event on May 10.
