The STRIVE award program is administered by Strategic Solutions and seeks to honor and recognize the contributions of employees who have gone above and beyond the status quo. These individuals have identified, initiated and successfully executed projects that create efficiency, improve quality, and/or reduce costs, in support of the university's mission.
STRIVE stands for Sustainable, Transformative, Return-on-investment, Interconnected, Voluntary and Entrepreneurial.
To be considered for the STRIVE Award, projects must have met one of the following criteria:
- Minimum of 200 hours per year of employee time saved, or
- Minimum of $25,000+ in hard savings (re-investible), or
- A substantive improvement in quality or employee/customer satisfaction.
