Staff Excellence

Each year a committee representing a cross section of the university community selects the winners from nominations by their colleagues. The program recognizes up to 10 staff members whose commitment has advanced the mission of Tulane through increased productivity, cost savings, humanitarianism or enhanced objectives. Recipients are honored with a one-time $1,000 cash prize and reception at the President's house.


Staff Recognition

Each year SAC co-hosts a recognition event with the WFMO for Tulane staff members celebrating anniversary years ending in '0s and '5s. Invitations are mailed from WFMO to those staff members who had an anniversary date in the previous calendar year.
