Recognition Online Submission Form

Recognition and praise for a job well done is important to overall employee satisfaction and engagement in the workplace.

We encourage you to look for opportunities to thank a staff member in the Office of Research and Economic Development (R&ED). When an individual (in the eyes of the nominator), has gone above and beyond the call of duty to be of assistance to a faculty, staff, or community member in support of research and economic development, please take a moment to recognize the individual.

The following are guiding principles for our Staff Recognition Program:

  • Any faculty, staff, or community member may submit a staff recognition form.
  • All current R&ED staff are eligible to be nominated for recognition.
  • Recognition forms will be submitted electronically, and the nominator will receive an electronic acknowledgment.
  • R&ED’s Recognition Committee will review nominations and coordinate the monthly award of Certificate(s) of Appreciation and Prize(s).
