Loyola Staff,

On Thursday, November 14, University Staff Council and Human Resources will present the Staff Recognition & Excellence Awards at a special ceremony. We invite you to attend the ceremony and to nominate staff members deserving of such recognition.

The awards ceremony will take place from 4—6 p.m. in the Sister Jean Dolores Schmidt Multipurpose Room in the Damen Student Center at the Lake Shore Campus. The awards recognize Loyola University Chicago staff members, in six categories, for their excellence in work and their commitment to serving others.

  • Staff Member of the Year Award
  • Kay Egan (Person for Others) Award
  • Megs Langdon (Person for Community) Award
  • Student Service (Person for Students) Award
  • Team Spirit Award
  • Rising Star (New Employee) Award

We encourage you to take advantage of this University-approved vehicle to celebrate your staff’s commitment to excellence and we hope you will take time to nominate members of your staff for one or more of the awards, as taking time to recognize and award employees can have a significant impact on employee performance and engagement.
