Recognition Committee

The All Staff Council Recognition Committee strives to make sure staff members at Drake are recognized and rewarded for a job well done, feel appreciated for the work they do, and are welcomed as valued members of the Drake Bulldog community.

A few of the current recognition programs administered by the Recognition Committee include:

Called to be True Blue Awards

Throughout the academic year, faculty and staff can nominate staff members or teams for excellence, learning, integrity, leadership, teamwork, integrity, and commitment to the Drake community. Selected individuals and teams receive a framed certificate and gift card, and are placed in the running for a Sapphire Award.

Sapphire Awards

All staff members are invited to this spring staff recognition event with snacks, entertainment, and awards. From all True Blue honorees throughout the school year, Sapphire Awards will be presented to one top individual, who will also receive a coveted blue phone, and one team, which will receive a traveling bulldog statue trophy.

Bulldog Applause

The Recognition Committee also administers Bulldog Applause, in which Drake departments are selected each month to receive a surprise cookie delivery at a staff meeting.

Other recognition programs

The team also writes and delivers welcome notes and candy to newly hired staff members, and holds a monthly drawing in concert with the $5 Sodexo Staff Appreciation Lunches, in which staff members can win donated Drake items.
