Community Spirit Award

This award seeks to recognize Purdue employees' outstanding service to the community, society and humanity.  APSAC and the Clerical and Service Staff Advisory Committee (CSSAC) created the award in 2011.

Administrative, professional, clerical and service staff members are eligible for the award.

The number and quality of recommendations the award committee receives will determine the number of awards given each year. A primary nominee will be selected, but others may be recognized as honorable mentions.

Applications are available every August and awards are announced in October. Updates will be communicated via Purdue Today.
