In August, we will be announcing recipients of the staff awards that are typically given out at the annual appreciation event.
We are launching the following new awards this year:
These three recognitions were proposed by the Staff Council’s Recognition and Appreciation subcommittee following a survey of staff that revealed a strong interest in developing more awards for SU staff colleagues.
These three new staff awards will take their place alongside the two existing Excellence in Leadership Awards ordinarily given to staff at the appreciation event—one for exempt staff, the other for non-exempt (formerly known as the Lee Thurber Award).
In addition, we typically honor during the appreciation event a faculty member with the James B. McGoldrick, S.J., Fellowship, which includes a sabbatical for one academic term.
In light of COVID-19, the decision was made to hold off on naming a McGoldrick Fellow for 2020-2021, but we look forward to resuming this award next year and again presenting it at the 2021 event.
