Hi Lanita,We do awards for professional staff (we do not have different awards for categories of employees), collaborations including at least two offices, and student awards. Annually a selection committee of 8-10 is appointed to review submissions and select winners.
For more information: https://www.studentaffairs.miami.edu/resources/staff-resources/laurel-awards/index.htmlI have found this work to always be a bit challenging, often hard to recognize individuals while trying to support the whole division. Lots of unsung heroes in our work.
At Illinois State we have,STAR Awards in the Division of Student Affairs - Staff That Are Remarkable.https://studentaffairs.illinoisstate.edu/awards/staff/star

Our Division has 4 awards that are handed out each year, https://www.usm.edu/student-affairs/award-winners.php.
These awards have been around for about 4 years, before that there really were not any formal awards that were consistently handed out. Let me know if you want to connect with the individual who oversees this or have any additional questions.
