Outstanding Staff Awards

Purpose of Outstanding Staff Awards

Baylor is blessed with exceptional staff members whose unfailing support and selfless contributions provide an invaluable foundation to the Baylor family. The Baylor University staff serves with a dedication to excellence that often goes above and beyond expectations providing service to students, parents, faculty, community members, and each other. To honor these contributions, we ask that you take a few moments to nominate Baylor staff members for the Outstanding Staff Award.
It is a privilege to serve Baylor and her students and it is incredibly humbling to have been recognized by my peers as an outstanding staff member.

History of Outstanding Staff Awards

The annual Outstanding Staff Award recognizes Baylor staff members who have accomplished exceptional achievements in their respective job assignment, support the fulfillment of the university's mission, and contribute through service at Baylor, the community, and their church. Outstanding Staff Award winners receive presidential recognition at the Spring Staff Forum, a plaque commemorating the honor, a monetary gift, and participation in the Homecoming Parade.
Being one of the recipients of the Outstanding Staff Award was a very motivating, humbling, and honorable experience for me. I really appreciated being nominated and know that there are many extraordinary staff colleagues who are also worthy of this award. It motivates me to work even harder in doing a job that I love. I will be forever grateful to those who nominated me.

Nomination of Staff

All faculty and staff are encouraged to thoughtfully consider and submit nominations for those dedicated staff members whose exceptional service furthers the university's mission of integrating academic excellence and Christian commitment within a caring community.
While the faculty and students I work with are very affirming of me and of my work, it was a wonderful honor when they wanted to share their appreciation with my peers by nominating me for the Outstanding Staff Award. It is the ultimate way to honor a staff member at Baylor University.
