Employee Recognition & Powerful Partnership Awards

Tis the season folks! The Employee Development Committee is now accepting nominations for the Student Affairs Thomas F. Burke Employee of the Year Award and the Student Affairs Powerful Partnerships Award.

The Thomas F. Burke Employee of the Year Award is awarded to Student Affairs employees who exemplify the traits and values instilled upon the Division of Student Affairs during Tom Burke's 28 years of leadership: character, sense of humor, common sense, honesty, "others" centered, respectful, focused on employee and student development, competent, consistently supportive of the University's Catholic tradition, helped students and employees to fulfill the potential within themselves, and the gift of love to others.

The Student Affairs Powerful Partnership Award is designed to recognize departments or offices that have worked with the Student Affairs Division to enhance the integrated learning educational experience opportunities on campus.

Nomination forms can be found at sandiego.edu/studentaffairs/resources/employee_recognition/. Nominations are due on May 10 for both awards and the winners will be recognized at the Student Affairs End of the Year breakfast on June 5th in Hahn UC Forum C.

We look forward to receiving your nominations!
