Awards and Scholarships
The Staff Council is committed to recognizing our outstanding staff on campus.
One of the first suggestions sent to the Staff Council after its formation led to the creation of the CARE Awards. CARE stands for Celebrate Achievement, Reward Excellence. The CARE Awards are managed by the Staff Council, selected by a committee of peer staff members, and presented by the UT Dallas president.
The Staff Council also awards the Sandee Goertzen Staff Council Member of the Year Award. This award recognizes the best of the best among the Staff Council representatives. The award is named in honor of Sandee Goertzen, the first chair of the Staff Council and a strong advocate for the founding of the Staff Council in 1997.
The Staff Council raises money to support the Staff Council Scholarship. Awards of $250 per semester are given to staff members each fall and spring semester. The scholarships are awarded by the Staff Council Benefits Committee.
