University Staff Excellence Awards call for nominations and career fair.


The University of Utah Staff Excellence Awards recognize superior service and ongoing contributions by the university’s full-time staff.

A total of 24 District Staff Excellence Awards will be presented throughout the university from among five districts:  Academic Affairs, Administration, Academic Health Sciences, Hospitals and Clinics and Student Affairs.  In addition to receiving the District Staff Award, the selected employees from each district will have their names forwarded as nominees for one of six University Staff Excellence Awards.  All District Staff Excellence Award winners will be recognized at a luncheon with President David W. Pershing where the final six University Staff Excellence Award winners will be announced.  Winners of the Staff Excellence Award will each receive $5,000.

Nominees must have at least three years of continuous, full-time (.75 FTE and above) service at the university to be eligible. Faculty, director-level staff and above, University of Utah Staff Council members and district award team members are not eligible for this award.  You may nominate anyone from your district or from another district who meets the eligibility criteria.
