Annual Employee Recognition
Washburn University celebrates the contributions of its faculty and staff with
Employee Recognition. The ceremony began in 1993. Faculty awards recognize
exemplary teaching, scholarship and service with monetary awards made possible
by endowed funds. Employees also are recognized for their years of service
every five years.
Fleming Excellence in Teaching Award is presented each year to recognize members of
the faculty who have demonstrated a high level of excellence in teaching.
Faculty Award for Outstanding Service Award recognizes the contributions of faculty and librarians to the
university, to a profession or discipline, or to the public.
Roy Myers Excellence in Research Award is given to recognize the efforts of full-time
faculty members who have made outstanding contributions to higher
education by their teaching and, primarily, their research efforts.
Service Awards are given annually to the best and the
brightest Washburn employees. These awards are especially rewarding
because their peers, those people they work with and who know them the
best, nominate the winners. The
awards are given for three categories: Service/Maintenance,
Secretarial/Clerical, and Administrative, Technical or Paraprofessional. Nominations
are accepted during January and February. Contact the University
Relations office for more information.
- Muriel D. Clarke Student Life Award is chosen from the recipients of that
specific year’s Student Life Achieving Excellence Award. The Achieving
Excellence award is an ongoing award presented to a student advisor,
faculty or staff member, or community leader who demonstrates excellence
in working with individual students, student groups and organizations and
who reflects the guiding principles of the student life area.
