Selection Committee

The Engineering Staff Advisory Council (ESAC) acts as our Staff Awards Committee. ESAC consists of 20 staff employees from various job categories: Professional, Managerial, Support, Technical and Administrative. ESAC is an engineering staff leadership and service organization whose mission is to provide a voice for and serve as a connective thread between staff, faculty and administration.

The committee will be divided into four sub-committees representing each type of staff award: Key Contributor, New Employee, Staff Excellence and Engineering Team. The sub-committee will review all eligible nominations and determine their top candidate as a collective body. The sub-committee will then address the committee at-large with their final candidate.

Department head and supervisors will be notified of the recipients.
