Awards & Recognition

Honoring our Mission

The Mission and Values Integration Committee sponsors the annual Franciscan Spirit Award, which is uniquely designed to celebrate any faculty or staff member who exemplifies the Franciscan Values.

Monthly, the same committee awards a member of our community with the Values in Action distinction.

Celebrating Milestones – Employee Recognition

We like to celebrate the milestones achieved by our employees. We do this every day in smaller ways, but also more formally at the annual Employee recognition dinner.

Recognizing Excellence – Employee Awards

The Leepoxy Award is given annually to a faculty member who was nominated by a student for striving to make a difference and who has a deep commitment both to the student learning process and the vision of higher education.

The Teaching Excellence and Campus Leadership Award honors an exceptional faculty member for their excellence in the classroom and their leadership in the USF community or greater Fort Wayne community.

The Staff Excellence Award recognizes a staff employee who leads the campus community through their innovation and commitment to process improvement.
