On-the-Spot Rewards Program

Employees expect—and deserve—to be recognized for their extra efforts. The On-the-Spot Rewards Program provides “in the moment” recognition for excellent performance and valuable contributions outside of the merit program.  By providing a Spot Bonus or Gift Card reward, managers have the opportunity to provide a meaningful “thank you” and connect the reward to the contribution and/or performance being recognized.  Eligibility and program details are provided in the Policy.

Adamian Award for Excellence in Teaching

The Gregory H. Adamian Award for Excellence in Teaching is a peer-nominated award for faculty who best demonstrate the following criteria:

  • Challenge to the fullest degree students' intellectual abilities and stimulate them to original and creative thinking;
  • Display exceptional interest in and concern for students and their work;
  • Successfully integrate the elements of their disciplines with other branches of knowledge;
  • Serve as a continuing source of inspiration and motivation to their colleagues, through the development of innovative approaches to instruction, or otherwise;
  • Possess exceptional mastery of their disciplines and remain current in their chosen fields.
