General Information

This award honors Penn State staff members who go above and beyond their normal routines in resolving difficult dilemmas, or who have been exceptionally creative and responsive to the needs of others.

The USAC Staff Recognition and Appreciation Program was created to honor "staff stars," and has recognized dozens of staff members in the past few years. All staff members are eligible and anyone at the University -- administrators, faculty, staff, technical service personnel or students -- may submit a nomination. Penn State has many staff members who provide extraordinary service to the University, campus visitors and co-workers. Through the Staff Recognition and Appreciation Program, the SAC aims to honor those staff members who regularly see potential in others, go the extra mile in a specific situation, and simply make life better for those around them.


To be considered for this award, staff members must meet the following criteria:

  • must be a full-time employee
