Dear UNT Community,

Don't forget — The nomination window for the 2021 Staff Appreciation Awards and Presidential Awards closes Monday, Nov. 1.

Please consider recognizing your colleagues and students who embody the UNT spirit through excellence in areas like customer service, leadership, community engagement, inclusion and student success. All UNT faculty, staff and students are eligible to submit a nomination.

Presidential Awards

Presidential Awards recognize members of the UNT community who embody the highest levels of achievement, excellence and service. The awards may be presented in conjunction with the Staff Appreciation Luncheon, Salute to Faculty Excellence, Honors Day or at a time designated by the president. Nomination forms can be found online and submitted to the Office of the President.

There are three Presidential Awards:

  • The UNT Community Award, which honors students, faculty or staff members for outstanding service that has enriched the UNT experience for the UNT community;
  • The Special Recognition Award, which is given to an extraordinary student, faculty or staff member (or group) who has contributed momentous, unique talent or service to the university and cultivated UNT pride; and
  • The Bob Rogers Service and Community Engagement Award, which celebrates a faculty or staff member whose talent, dedication, passion and service enhances both UNT and the greater community and helps them maintain strong bonds. This award is named in honor of the late Bob Rogers, Professor Emeritus of music and former assistant dean of the College of Music, who was best known for volunteering his time as a pianist at campus events and as a fixture in the Denton community.

Staff Appreciation Awards

Staff Appreciation Awards honor the excellence and outstanding qualities of UNT staff members and will be presented at the 2022 Staff Appreciation Luncheon. Nomination forms in English and Spanish can be found online and submitted to UNT System Human Resources.

There are eight Staff Appreciation Awards:

The Presidential and Staff Awards honor individuals who have not only elevated themselves, but also those around them and the Mean Green Family. We encourage you to take a moment to lift them up, just as they lift up our UNT community each and every day.
