Since 2018, the Outstanding Staff Award annually honors two individuals for their achievements, service, leadership, and dedication to Southern Oregon University.  Recipients are honored in-person at the annual End of Year Celebration Breakfast.  Each recipient receives a $750 honorarium and glass trophy.  Awardee names are also engraved on a perpetual plaque displayed in Churchill Hall.   [Note: Faculty positions are ineligible for this program as they are recognized via the Distinguished Teaching, Distinguished Service, and Distinguished Scholarship awards.]
