Examples of "Shout Out" worthy actions: Recipients of a "Shout Out" are entered into a drawing for a gift from the campus bookstore. One of the ways we encourage positive morale and staff engagement is through an informal recognition program called, "Shout Out."  If you would like to have a staff member recognized for their positive contribution to the University, give them a "Shout Out."  The Staff Recognition Committee, a committee of Staff Senate, works to create a positive work environment, improve employee engagement, and encourage an environment of support and appreciation.

  • Recognizing a staff member taking action in diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives  
  • Going above and beyond to help a fellow coworker or student
  • Someone with an infectious Positive Attitude
  • Taking initiative
  • Helping a co-worker complete a task voluntarily
  • Random acts of kindness
