Dick & Julie Daly Award for Education Student Staff Achievement

The Dick and Julie Daly Award for Education Student Staff Achievement recognizes the critical roles that student hourlies serve within the School’s community.

Student hourlies have a dual role as students who benefit from services and as staff who contribute to the quality of those services. This award is given annually to a student hourly worker employed by service units in the School of Education who best exemplify that dual role. The recipient receives a $500 monetary award.

These service units include, but are not limited to the Career Center, Cooperative Children’s Book Center (CCBC), Center on Education and Work (CEW), College Access Program (CAP), the Dean’s Office (including the Dean’s Office, Business Office, Office of Communications and Advancement, and Information Technology Office), Education Academic Services (EAS), Educational and Psychological Training Center (EPTC), Media, Education Resources and Information Technology (MERIT), Education Outreach & Partnerships (EOP), Student Diversity Programs, Testing and Evaluation and WISCAPE.
