Feb. 1 deadline nears for nominations for Awards of Excellence for both classified and unclassified professional staff

By Jennifer Gehrt

The Division of Human Resources is accepting nominations through Feb. 1 for two award programs: the K-State Classified Award of Excellence and the President's Award of Excellence for Unclassified Professionals. All winners receive a $1,000 award.

The K-State Classified Award of Excellence recognizes exemplary performance and contributions of classified support staff members who consistently excel in their positions and demonstrate integrity and a strong commitment to the mission and values of K-State. All classified benefits eligible staff members, full or part-time, are eligible to be nominated for this award. Three award winners are selected, one each from the following categories:

  • Office and clerical
  • Technical and professional
  • Service and maintenance

This is a different award program than the Classified Employee of the Year program sponsored by Classified Senate. More information about the K-State Classified Award of Excellence program, including the nomination form and procedures, is available online.

The President’s Award of Excellence for Unclassified Professionals fosters excellence in the workplace by rewarding and recognizing unclassified professional staff members who achieve excellence and/or make exemplary contributions to the mission and values of K-State. Unclassified professional staff/nonfaculty, with a minimum of three years of continuous service, who are employed at five-tenths or greater on a regular or term appointment are eligible.

Four awards are made, one in each of the following categories:

  • Team building, group activity, service to the university
  • Exceptional productivity, creativity or innovation
  • Distinguished accomplishment
  • Leadership

More information about the President’s Award of Excellence for Unclassified Professionals, including the nomination form and procedures, is available online.

Questions about the two award programs may be directed to HROffice@k-state.edu.
