The Classified Staff Outstanding Service Award (CSOSA) recognizes and applauds classified employees whose efforts benefit students, faculty and staff, and others within and outside the University community. Students, faculty, classified and administrative staff may nominate any permanent part-time or full-time classified employee.  The award recipient will be announced at the Classified Staff Awards Ceremony on May 17, 2017.  The recipient of the CSOSA receives a $1,000.00 award, a commemorative plaque, and a one-year reserved parking space (cost of space will reduce the amount of the award).  A picture will be taken and displayed with the recipient’s name on the permanent plaque which is located on the second floor of the Bowen-Thompson Student Union.
