Regents' Staff Member

The Chancellor of the Texas State University System annually selects an exceptional staff member from one component institution to receive the Regents' Staff Member Award. The award recognizes staff who excel in six areas: commitment to the university and its mission; job competency; collegiality; duration of service; community involvement; and exceptional achievement. Honorees receive a framed resolution, a medallion, a $3,000 cash award, and retain the title of Regents’ Staff Member for the duration of their service within TSUS.
