President's Awards for Excellence—2020 and 2021

From the President

Dear Colleagues:

Since 1986, the President’s Awards for Excellence has recognized the vital role that Wright State University staff has in promoting and maintaining excellence in all areas of the university. As the last 18+ months have demonstrated, the landscape in which work can be altered overnight, and the tenacity, resilience, and perseverance shown by our Wright State community have been nothing short of heroic.

Due to 2020 derailing many of our programs and awards ceremonies, we will publicly recognize 2019, 2020, and 2021 President’s Awards for Excellence in a ceremony this year. 

We are currently seeking nominations for the 2020 and 2021 award cycles. Nominated staff will be reviewed by the committee and myself. Classified and unclassified staff winners will be selected based on exemplary performance in the areas of human relations, leadership, service, and innovation. We will also be recognizing the outstanding campus unit, and units that have collaborated on a significant project or initiative. 

We depend on your participation for the continued success of these awards. This year, more than ever, your colleagues are deserving of a nomination for all they have done and continue to do in serving our students and helping Wright State University navigate the shifting sands of the COVID-19 pandemic. Please consider nominating one or more of your deserving colleagues.

I look forward to receiving your nominations.

Best Wishes,

Wright State University
