Eligibility and Award

All faculty and staff are eligible to be recognized as part of Tiger Spotlight. Each recipient will appear as part of the scrolling recipient feature on the website and receive a printable certificate. Emails will also be sent as part of the notification process directing recipients to the newest spotlight received.


There are no restrictions on the number of spotlights an employee can earn.


The Office of Employee Relations and Engagement is responsible for the administration of this program. We will maintain a database of all recipients and reserve the right to edit or delete any nomination that does not reflect the spirit of recognition in a positive light.

Additional Programs

The Office of Employee Relations and Engagement is currently reviewing all recognition programs as we look for more opportunities to recognize and celebrate our employees. Please be patient with us as we are in the process of working with various departments on campus, as well as reaching out to external vendors in an effort to develop and/or renew partnerships that will allow our programs to continue on a much grander scale.
