Pillars of Excellence is an annual awards program designed to acknowledge employees who demonstrate a sustained high level of performance and inspire others to do their best.
This program may be used by departments as “colleague to colleague” recognition or by managers/supervisors to recognize an employee or a team for outstanding performance.
An awards committee with faculty and staff representatives will choose the recipients, based on criteria aligned with the UMass Lowell Pillars of Excellence:
