Recognize an Outstanding Colleague

The University of Connecticut established the UConn Spirit Awards to honor staff and faculty at our Storrs and regional campuses for stellar contributions and dedication to civility in the workplace. The goals of the UConn Spirit Awards are to:

  • Build community within the University and University departments;
  • Provide an opportunity for employees to be recognized for their contributions to the University, which are not specifically academic but related to teamwork and civility; and
  • Create an event that acknowledges the efforts of all employees, especially staff members.

Nominate a colleague or group of colleagues for a Rising Star, Unsung Hero, Team, or Outstanding Peer award. Learn more and submit nominations at

Nominations close Feb. 1, 2017.
