WSU Spokane Faculty & Staff Excellence Awards

2017 Staff Excellence Award

How the program works: Two Staff Excellence Awards recognizing outstanding contributions are given each year, one to an Administrative Professional employee and one to a Civil Service/Bargaining Unit employee. New in January 2016 was a “Department/Unit” excellence award. The selection committee consists of past award recipients. Awards are presented at a campus-wide ceremony, usually held in January.

The primary criterion of the Faculty Excellence Award is teaching excellence. Recipients are honored during the WSU Spokane Commencement Ceremony. The selection committee consists of past recipients.
