Moments of Excellence is a Staff Senate initiative designed to recognize excellence among staff members. DSU employees are encouraged to nominate a staff member they feel has gone above and beyond the call of duty in one or more of the following categories: positive attitude; excellent teamwork; going the extra mile; marvelous motivator; outstanding customer service; loyalty and commitment to the university; innovation and creativity; diligence; or a category of the nominator’s choosing. The award is given out monthly. Nominations for Moments of Excellence Awards can be made via the Staff Senate web page. The first Moments of Excellence was awarded July 2007.
Staff Senate Scholarship was founded in 2007 and is given to help a student(s) who is a dependent of a DSU staff member.
