Service Awards

The Service Awards program is an opportunity for University of Houston-Clear Lake to celebrate and recognize employees who have served the UHCL community for 5 years to 40 years. UHCL's leadership understands that longevity is significant and appreciates the service given to the UHCL community. A Service Awards ceremony is held each spring as an opportunity to be rewarded for those endeavors. 

Hugh P. Avery-President's Distinguished Staff and Staff Merit Awards

Additionally, a select group of employees is honored each year through the annual staff awards program, which includes the Staff Merit Awards and the Hugh P. Avery-President's Distinguished Staff Service Award. 

Taking time to applaud valuable contributions builds community and stronger teams in the process. Recognition that comes from a manager or from a peer are equally important. When staff demonstrate excellence, integrity, innovation, diversity, and respect, it’s time to congratulate them on a job well done. If you are interested in nominating a UHCL staff member for consideration, please read the guidelines, tips for a successful nomination, and submit a nomination Friday February 28, 2020. 

  • Nominee must have a minimum of two years of service with UHCL completed by December 31, 2019.
  • Nominee must be in good standing in his/her department.
  • Faculty are not eligible for these awards as they have separate awards.
  • The selection committee consists of winners from the previous year and other employees selected by the co-chair of the University Life Committee.
  • Finalists will be selected by the committee and submitted to the President.  The President will make the final selections.
  Tips for Submitting a Successful Nomination

1. Ensure the nomination form is filled out completely.  Incomplete submissions will not be forwarded to the selection committee. 

2. Be descriptive!  Remember the selection committee may not be familiar with the nominee.  Elaborate and prove to the committee why your nominee is the best person for the award. 

3.  Try to write more than one sentence for each response.  Think about the impact your nominee has had and what it would be like if your nominee had not gone the extra mile.
