Employee Recognition

The Wiley College Employee Recognition Program is designed to promote activities that encourage campus employees to live out the values of the institution through their daily performance. The employee recognition program is a multi-prong approach to increasing recognition of employees who exhibit, excellence, kindness, and work to promote a community of civility.

Being Bold and Audacious – Welcome to the Community Lunch

The culture of the institution is set by the leadership, specifically, the President. During these experiences, new employees are invited to engage in a welcome lunch with President Felton. During this experience, new employees learn more about why Wiley College matters, and how they are a vital part of the Bold and Audacious vision for the institution.

You’re A Rockstar – Monthly Employee Recognition Program

Wiley College is not only the home of The Great Debaters but also home to the Wiley College Rockstars. In this program every month, a member of the faculty or staff are selected for their outstanding contribution to the institution through the following actions:

  • Demonstration of excellence in their efforts by moving the Wiley College values, vision, and/or mission forward through actions.
  • Demonstration of kindness in their actions to a student, or colleague.

We will invite campus members to nominate faculty or staff members during a nomination period of the 2nd through the 22nd of each month. The nominations will be reviewed by the committee and the awardee will be announced on the 1st of each month. Employees recognized as Wiley College Rockstars will receive a $ 100 gift card.

President’s Recognition of the Excellence at Wiley College Award- Excellence in learning and social good (not a teaching award)

Each year a faculty and staff member will be nominated by students and selected by the committee on behalf of the Office of the President. This award is given by the President, for demonstrated excellence in promoting learning in all spaces and supporting social good at Wiley College. Each year awardees will be recognized at Graduation.
