The Classified Staff Advisory Council has announced a new award to celebrate the character, passion and commitment of non-classified faculty and staff who have supported the advancement of UW Oshkosh classified staff.

While the STAR Award typically is reserved for classified staff employees only, the Richard H. Wells Star Award was established to recognize the bond that is shared among all members of the campus community. Any current faculty, instructional academic staff and non-instructional academic staff member who is at least 50 percent FTE and has worked at the University for at least six months are eligible for the award.

The first special STAR Award was given to Chancellor Richard H. Wells on Sept. 2, 2008, in recognition of the many initiatives he spearheaded for classified (represented, non-represented, limited-term and project appointment) employees.
