APSAC accepting nominations for Community Spirit Award

The Administrative and Professional Staff Advisory Committee (APSAC) and the Clerical and Service Staff Advisory Committee (CSSAC) are now accepting nominations for their annual Community Spirit Award. This joint-committee award was created in 2011 to recognize Purdue employees who make an impact in the local community through their philanthropic efforts.

The Community Spirit Award is given to a staff member who sets a high standard for service, encourages a sustained commitment to civic participation, and inspires others to make service a central part of their lives. The award strives to honor those individuals who volunteer their time to improve our community and lives of those in it.

Nominations will be accepted from Aug. 1, 2014 to Aug. 29, 2014. Administrative and professional or clerical and service staff members are eligible to be nominated. Any organization or individual, on or off campus, may submit a nomination. Questions can be directed to Tyson McFall, tjmcfall@purdue.edu or 765-494-0352.

Our Mission

APSAC serves as a two-way conduit between A/P staff and the administration. As such, APSAC serves two distinct constituencies, each with the need to hear the other and to be heard by the other. In its role as a communication facilitator, APSAC offers A/P staff a mechanism to voice their interests and concerns as they relate to campus affairs.

How We Contribute

APSAC operates with a chair and a vice chair; much of its actual work is completed through subcommittees. The entire group meets monthly.

Our Core Values

  • Act with Integrity
  • Advocate for the A/P Staff
  • Communicate effectively
  • Collaborate creatively and inclusively

How We Feel

APSAC takes pride in its accomplishments on behalf of administrative and professional staff at Purdue. Our intention is to contribute to the mission of the University as a whole by building relationships with the Administration and with constituents. APSAC members welcome the opportunity to work together to make Purdue even better.
