Rave Awards

The Rave Awards were created to honor both student employees and supervisors of student employees who go above and beyond to support the mission, goals, and values of your department and Illinois Tech. This ongoing program is a way to recognize the little things that may otherwise go unnoticed, that keep us motivated, positive, and and that create an enjoyable and productive workplace. 

For example:

  • Your Student:
    • trains other students without being asked
    • refills the copier every week
    • fully mastered that pesky internal tracking system
  • Your Supervisor:
    • provides you with really useful training for your job
    • offers professional development advice
    • greets you with a smile every day 

Do any of these remind you of someone you know?  Submit a nomination

Each nominee will receive an award certificate, be recognized on our website and social media, and we will celebrate all submissions at the end of the year! Nominees must either be a student employee, supervisor of a student employee, or a department coordinator who is involved in hiring students.

FALL 2017 DATES

Nominations will be accepted through October 31, 2017, for the fall 2017 semester. Those nominated after October 31 will be considered for next semester.

rave awards celebration

On November 29th, the Student Employment Office will host a thank you breakfast where they will distribute Rave Awards to honor student and student supervisor employees who go above and beyond in supporting the mission, goals, and values of Illinois Tech. The breakfast will be held from 9:30-11:00 a.m. in the Hermann Hall Expo so make sure to stop by to recognize the little things that create an enjoyable and productive workplace, but may otherwise go unnoticed. This event will also serve as an opportunity for supervisors to interact with other student supervisors or SEO and ask questions. 

As we have programming planned around the awards, we ask that attendees stay for the entirety of the breakfast.
