Staff Recognition

Penn Engineering Staff Recognition Award

This award recognizes a non-faculty employee whose presence contributes in an extraordinary way to the aspirations of the School of Engineering and Applied Science and inspires excellent performance from others.  Penn Engineering HR initiates a school-wide call for nominations every year.  All faculty and staff are eligible to submit nominations. Qualities to consider are in relation to any or all of the following:

  • Performance in assigned responsibilities and beyond
  • Consistent performance over time which earns the clear respect of co-workers
  • Support for School goals
  • Devoted service to students and faculty
  • Unusual performance which affects leadership and influences beyond the norm

Nominations are reviewed by the Staff Recognition Award Selection Committee.  Committee members include awardees from the previous two years, a faculty leader, the SEAS Faculty Council Chair, and the Vice Dean for Finance and Administration.
