For full-time staff employee
The 1987 United Nations Brundtland Commission defined sustainability as “meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs”. In coordination with the IUPUI Office of Sustainability, the IUPUI Staff Council will annually recognize one full-time staff member who has demonstrated how their efforts have greatly contributed to the creation of a culture of sustainability on the IUPUI campus. A full-time staff member who has exhibited exceptional commitment to achieving social justice, environmental conservation, and financial responsibility will be awarded the IUPUI Staff Sustainability Award.
The IUPUI Staff Sustainability Award is open to all full-time staff members with at least two years of service, except for those staff employed by the IUPUI Office of Sustainability. All nominees for the IUPUI Staff Sustainability Award will receive a letter of notification by email that they have been nominated for the award. The award recipient will receive a congratulations letter and the appropriate supervisor(s) will be notified. This year’s award will be presented at the IUPUI Chancellor’s Staff Recognition Ceremony. Additionally, they will be honored at a tree planting ceremony on Arbor Day, at which they can assist in planting a tree in their name.
The IUPUI Staff Sustainability Award is sponsored by the IUPUI Staff Council and administered by the Staff Council Rewards and Recognition Committee in collaboration with the councils Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion and Sustainability Committees.
