iltech_today.jpgThe success of our students, faculty, and university would not be possible without the hard work, outstanding support, and services provided by Illinois Tech staff.

The university community now has the opportunity to recognize outstanding staff members that have exemplified Illinois Tech’s spirit of excellence in 2020 with accomplishments in the following areas:

  • Addressing issues related to diversity, identity, inclusion, or other social justice topics

  • Developing an innovative solution that improves the experience of Illinois Tech students (prospective or current) or alumni
  • Developing an innovative contribution to support excellence in teaching and research

Nominations can originate from anyone in the university community including staff, faculty, students or vendors. Judging criteria will be based on service to students, faculty, or staff; innovation and excellence of the initiative; and the degree to which the initiative improves a university function.

A team of awards committee members will review the nominations and select award winners.
