The Western Way Employee Recognition Program recognizes staff and faculty who go above and beyond in their work. The program’s goal is to foster community by recognizing employees who Make Waves in their daily professional activities.
All individuals recognized for this honor will be listed on the Western Way Wall of Acknowledgment web page, in Western Today and at the Employee Recognition Ceremony each spring.
What does “The Western Way” mean? It refers to going beyond what is expected to help students achieve success.
Through close relationships with professors and mentors, a supportive community atmosphere and an overriding commitment to academic excellence, we help people find their passion and we inspire them to pursue it with everything they’ve got. We don’t want students to just get a degree, we want them to make waves. The work we do at Western is all about providing the personal support and focused attention that each student needs to be able to graduate and help shape the future of Washington and the world beyond. Remember, whether you are involved in teaching, advising and mentoring students, or managing the myriad support systems on campus, you are contributing to student success!
