Nominate an outstanding organization

October 8, 2012

The Educational Opportunity Center was recently recognized as an outstanding unit on campus. The nomination form read: "The employees of the EOC have a genuine regard for each other and they share a wealth of personal stories about students they've helped achieve the dream of going to college."

It doesn't matter if they're large or small -- if you'd like to nominate them for recognition, just keep reading and learn how to send a nomination form to the CSU Employee Appreciation Board.

Have you heard of us?

The CSU Employee Appreciation Board, formed in 1968, is one of the longest-standing traditions on campus. Originally called the "Faculty Club Board," the mission of the board has remained the same over the years -- to recognize employees and to promote community spirit among faculty and staff.   

Each month the board recognizes an outstanding work unit on campus.

The board collects nominations from across campus, carefully reviews the nomination forms (which detail why a group should be recognized) and then votes.

Board members then organize and facilitate the recognition events such as a luncheon, breakfast, or ice cream social.
