The award also recognizes individuals who demonstrate leadership in advancing the issues of classified staff on campus. The three leadership categories are personal and professional development in the areas of education, culture and international awareness; respectful work environment, which includes building a collaborative relationship between management, faculty, staff and students; and diversity, which includes demonstrating a commitment to make a difference and to creating equal opportunity and freedom from discrimination.
