Employee Recognition Programs

University Awards

University awards recognize employee achievements in teaching, research, student advising and mentoring, service, citizenship, leadership and outreach. The awards are Iowa State's highest honors for employees of the university.

Extra-Meritorious Performance Pay Program

This program awards one-time payments for Professional and Scientific employees who perform beyond the scope of their duties. The payments do not become part of an employee's base salary. Examples include work on special projects or major initiatives. To be eligibile, P&S staff must have at least one year of experience at the university at the time of the award and be a current employee in a term or continuous position.
