Points of Excellence Award

The Program

A great University such as ours earns its reputation through the efforts of each and every staff member. As co-workers, administrators and supervisors, we must acknowledge the extra step, the special attentions, the extraordinary effort of our colleagues in order to fuel the spark that provides the very best in student service and educational delivery.
