Outstanding Staff Awards

2018 Outstanding Staff Awards - March 29, 2019, 2-4 PM, School of Music

Each year, the University of South Florida System’s Outstanding Staff Awards (OSA) Program recognizes a select number of exceptional staff and administration employees who demonstrate a commitment to the pursuit of excellence and a level of performance that exceeds the values and standards of the University. Selected winners are honored at the Outstanding Staff Awards Ceremony with a trophy presentation and a monetary award. Additionally, two of the OSA winners are chosen to receive the Employee of the Year award, which is co-sponsored by the Gabor Agency.

Hosted by President Judy Genshaft, the University community came together to recognize and celebrate the 79 honorees of the 2018 Outstanding Staff Awards at the USF School of Music Concert Hall on Friday, March 29th.

Individual and team award recipients were recognized for “above and beyond” contributions and achievements that have directly impacted the USF System, driven USF towards its strategic goals, helped the community, and/or positively influenced others.

In addition to a monetary award, the two will also receive a reserved parking space with a sign indicating “Employee of the Year” for one year, beginning with the Fall 2019 semester.
