The UW Staff Together We Will Awards were created to celebrate outstanding staff contributions made during the extraordinary challenges of 2020. The awards will serve as a temporary replacement for the Distinguished Staff Award program, which will be back in Oct. 2021. Please help recognize your amazing colleagues, by nominating them for this prestigious honor.


  • Essential staff and front-line workers who kept our patients as well as students living in campus housing safe.
  • Staff who made the quick pivot to online learning and remote work possible.
  • Staff in research and patient care roles who are rightfully called our healthcare heroes.
  • Staff participating in anti-racism efforts to ensure the UW’s programs are inclusive and equitable.
  • Staff who have gone above and beyond in ways big and small to support their colleagues and our greater community.
