Recognition Programs

Employee recognition aligns with the University's strategic directions and Ignatian values. In caring for the whole person (cura personalis), we value individuals and embrace their gifts and talents and their contributions to SLU and the community. Employee recognition comes in many forms from more formal programs to informal activities. We encourage managers and peers to engage in showing appreciation by using our formal and informal resources and programs.
