As part of the University's continuing effort to encourage and reward exemplary employees, the Gerald F. Scanlon Student Employee of the Year Award was instituted in the 1987-88 academic year. The intent of the award is to recognize and honor students who have demonstrated outstanding performance by contributing their time and/or skill to help the University achieve its goals and objectives.
A departmental supervisor may nominate any matriculated student who has been employed by the University for at least six months and is a junior or senior in good academic standing.
Nomination Criteria: The student nominee should have demonstrated performance that is considered “above and beyond” in most, if not all of the following performance qualities:
• Regular attendance, high dependability
• Successful completion of all assigned tasks
• High quality of assigned tasks
• Ability to work well with other employees
• Original contributions to the workplace
• Demonstrated initiative/professionalism
• Ability to work without constant supervision
A reception and award ceremony is held at the end of each academic year to honor the winners. A certificate and monetary award are presented to the ten students chosen.
