Do you know an employee who goes above and beyond the call of duty? We invite you to nominate that person for the NIU Outstanding Service Award!
This award is presented each year to recognize individual civil service employees who demonstrate outstanding service and who make significant contributions to the university and to their community.
Up to four (4) awards are presented at the annual Operating Staff Service Awards Banquet in the spring. Shortly thereafter each recipient receives a $1,500 award (considered taxable wages). All full- or part-time status civil service employees who have been continuously employed at NIU since February 1, 2008, or before are eligible.
