Rewarding Excellence 

Behind every great institution is a hardworking, dedicated team. Since 1902, our staff has been driven by their passion for learning, commitment for improvment and ambition to bringing world-class education to the heart of Indiana. But here, staff don’t just work behind the scenes, they’re interwoven into the fabric of the university, bringing collaboration, innovation, diligence and school spirit to the forefront of our campus.

While we appreciate and applaud all who work to make UIndy the inspirational place it is, we’ve designed the Staff Achievement Awards Program to reward and highlight outstanding performances by university staff.


To show our gratitude, award winners will receive:

  • Recognition at the Faculty and Staff Institute in August. Read more about this year's winners.

  • Award plaque

  • Additional day off within the academic year 

  • A check for $1,000 (if a group is awarded, the group will split the $1,000 evenly)

  • Recognition on the UIndy website and social media 

  • Signage in Esch Hall
