Note: As of April 2021, the CHHS faculty and staff award process is currently on-hold and we are not accepting nominations. When the process restarts, we will remove this note and send an email to all CHHS staff and faculty.
The College of Health and Human Services recognizes faculty and staff with six annual awards. Faculty, staff, students and alumni are invited to nominate individuals throughout the year. These awards will be given at a college-wide, all-hands meeting near the end of the spring semester. More information and nomination forms for the awards are available below.
