The Rave Awards

The "Rave Award" was created to honor both student employees and supervisors of student employees who go above and beyond to support the mission, goals, and values of the 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 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.


Nominations will be accepted throughout September and October, until October 31st.
