Every year at the Christmas luncheon for staff members, the University presents four staff awards:
- Rev. Charles Miltner, C.S.C. Award: Awarded to employees who have been of exemplary and outstanding service to the University. This is University of Portland’s highest award and includes all categories of staff employees.
- Margaret Henzi Award: Awarded to administrative or office support employees who have performed their jobs in an exemplary manner, while positively representing the University to the many and varied constituencies it serves.
- Deiss/Dodson Award: Awarded to outstanding physical plant employees who exemplify the qualities of pride in their work, and dedication to the University. Beginning in 2011, the Deiss and Dodson award were combined into one award; prior to 2011, they had been separate awards.
- Hooyboer Award: Awarded to outstanding professional staff members who exemplify quality and collaboration, and who make a positive impact on the University community.
If you would like to nominate a staff member, please do so by November 8, 2018. The nomination form can be accessed using this link.
