Enrollment Heroes for the Week of July 15-19

By Sheryl E. Taylor

For the week of July 15-19, two new Enrollment Heroes were nominated by their peers for their hard work, dedication and contributions toward UHD's 15,000 Enrollment Challenge:

  • Eugene Bernard, Director, Student Transitions
  • Tristan Jackson, Academic Advisor II

In collaboration with Employment Services Operations, all recipients who are recognized as an Enrollment Hero will be eligible for the following:

Staff

  • $250 Award
  • Eight hours of administrative leave with pay*(May be used as an eight-hour day or two blocks or four hours, coded as Administrative Leave, which must be taken within 12 months of the date awarded.)
  • Gift package from Enrollment Management

Faculty

  • $350 Award
  • Eight hours of administrative leave with pay*(May be used as an eight-hour day or two blocks or four hours, coded as Administrative Leave, which must be taken within 12 months of the date awarded.)
  • Gift package from Enrollment Management

If interested in nominating colleagues as future Enrollment Heroes, submit nominations of current UHD faculty and staff who are going above and beyond to support the institution’s 15,000 enrollment campaign by noon on Monday, July 22, for consideration. As UHD continues to strive to meet the enrollment goal, I encourage everyone to take it upon yourself to individually recognize colleagues who are making a great impact toward our institutional goal.

Don’t forget to keep up with the campaign challenge’s progress, check out the Gator Meter which tracks UHD’s progress to the 15,000 enrollment goal.
