Staff Recognition

Jodi K. Humphrey Staff Award

Nomination Form


The Jodi K. Humphrey Inspirational Staff award was established in November 1995 to honor and remember longtime Department of Residence Life and Dining Services employee Joleen "Jodi" K. Humphrey.  In her position on campus, Jodi inspired people to do their best, remain positive under stressful conditions, serve as a positive role model to others, show eagerness toward the job, display a cheerful attitude toward customers and motivate self and others.


The award was initially established as a plaque of recognition for a job well done.  In the spirit of Jodi, a private donor stepped forward and continues to contribute the $1000 cash award.  The Jody K. Humphrey Inspirational Staff award is presented annually as part of the Staff Recognition Day program.


Benefited UW Staff are eligible for nomination for the Jodi K. Humphrey Inspirational Staff award.  They must have completed their probation term prior to January of the nomination year.

Nomination Process

Each nomination must be submitted using the online form.  If an incomplete form is received prior to the deadline, the nominator will be contacted to complete the form correctly. 

Each nominee must have a minimum of three separate nominations. Only the first three nominations per nominee will be considered for this award.  

After the nomination period closes, the Recognition Committee will examine the potential candidates.  The committee chair will ensure that all of the nominations follow the process guidelines and that there are no descriptors used that compromise anonymity.  The Recognition Committee, not including the chair, may narrow the choices down to half (or a minimum of four) of the original nominee pool by rating each nominee on a 7-point Likert scale.  If the original nominee pool does not exceed four nominees, the committee will not screen.  The Executive Committee of Staff Senate will select the final award recipient.

  • Inspires others to do their best

  • Remains positive under stressful conditions

  • Serves as a role model to others

  • Is enthusiastic toward the job
