Employee recognition program

The Employee Recognition Program reinforces ASU's culture and supports its objectives. This program promotes and perpetuates our shared values of excellence, innovation, continuous improvement, creative expression, peer recognition, collaboration across departments and disciplines, use-inspired outcomes, and community spirit.

These awards and celebrations provide the university and employees with opportunities to recognize and celebrate the commitment and contributions of ASU employees.

“Through the efforts of ASU employees, we are creating one of the greatest learning environments ever established anywhere. I appreciate the commitment and significant contributions demonstrated by our university employees, and I support the opportunities we have to acknowledge and celebrate the individual and collective accomplishments of our colleagues. ”—Michael M. Crow, ASU President
