Staff Awards


Staff Member of the Month

We encourage all employees to submit nominations for Staff Member of the Month! Any staff member (not faculty or administrators) may be nominated for Staff Member of the Month, but in order to win, staff members must hold permanent employee status (not temporary, contract, grant-funded or Foundation) and be employed at Winthrop University for at least 12 months. Nominees and winners are recognized at each Staff Conference.
