Office of Student Affairs

Outstanding Student Affairs Professional

The Division of Student Affairs recognizes recipients of the Outstanding Student Affairs Professional Award at the Student Leadership & Service Awards in April each year. Due to the significant increase in University and System sponsored staff recognition opportunities, the division of Student Affairs did not award Outstanding Student Affairs Professional awards in 2018.

An Outstanding Student Affairs Professional must:

  • Be an employee in one of the division service areas or departments.
  • Demonstrate dedication to UT Tyler students through quality work and service.
  • Contribute toward achieving the goals of their department/office.
  • Display a positive attitude and commitment to the continual improvement or growth of their office, the division and the university.
