Dean's Award for Student Employee Excellence

Student employee award winners

At KU Libraries, our student employees are essential to maintaining our services, collections, and operations, and the Dean's Award for Student Employee Excellence is one way to recognize the dedication and quality of service they provide.


This $500 award will be presented to two student employees in May. The Dean, together with input from members of the KU Libraries Board of Advocates, will select the winners.

Here are a few things to keep in mind: 

  • Full-time KU Libraries staff and faculty may submit nominations.
  • It is very important that nominators make a strong, persuasive, and clear case for their candidates in the nomination form.
  • Only nominations for individual student employees will be accepted.
  • Please note, both undergraduate and graduate student workers may be nominated for the DASEE.

Please complete the online web form to submit a nomination. DASEE award nominations are to be completed by Friday, April 12th, at 5 p.m.
