Supervisor of the Year Award

Nomination Form


This award was created to recognize an outstanding supervisor at UW.


Eligible nominees must:

  • Be a University of Wyoming staff or faculty member

  • Have been a supervisor of one or more classified staff members for at least one year 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 two nominations.

After the nomination period closes, the Recognition Committee will evaluate the 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 Recognition committee will not screen the candidates. The Executive Committee of Staff Senate will select the final award recipient.
