How Can I Nominate a Deserving Employee?

WTAMU appreciates the efforts of the employees to achieve goals and maintain the vision of the University. Outstanding employees are to be recognized both as a reward for their performance but also to serve as a model for other employees. To nominate a deserving co-worker:­ please submit a nomination form through Submittable.

All part-time and full-time WTAMU Staff and SSC employees are eligible to be nominated for Employee-of-the-Month (EOM); faculty and student workers are not eligible (as classified with Human Resources, despite job responsibilities).
