Exempt Employee of the Month

Every month the EEA recognizes an employee who fosters a work environment that supports colleagues of the university community as well as the mission of CWU.

The award was created so that employees who go above and beyond their normal job responsibilities, who offer unique contributions to their work unit and/or the university as a whole, who have a significant and positive impact on those they work with or come in contact with, and who consistently perform for the betterment of CWU could be recognized for their work.
 
Anyone may nominate an employee for this award through this online submission form.  The monthly winners receive $125 and are eligible to become the university's Exempt Employee of the Year.

The monthly winners are formally recognized at our quarterly combined Employee of the Month ceremony with our Classified Staff counterparts and at the Annual Employee Appreciation Awards, where the Employee of the Year is announced.
