The Rewards Initiative will focus on the recognition of workplace and community engagement of our faculty, academic staff, classified staff and student employees. Through this initiative, we hope to advance a permanent and structured method for highlighting and recognizing our campus family for their internal and external accomplishments.

We also hope to utilize the work of this team to advance a culture of respect and honor for those that are seldom recognized for their endeavors, yet day-to-day continue to make our university and our community a better place to live, work, and learn.
