The Positive Recognition Program (PRP) for Employee Excellence reinforces Queens College’s mission and strategic plan. It helps us recognize talented individuals who integrate strategic goals into the campus culture:

  1. Weaving transnational connections;
  2. Launching graduates into the global future;
  3. Nurturing the scholarship and creativity of our world-class faculty;
  4. Building a campus community;
  5. Enriching our local community.

The purpose of the PRP for Employee Excellence is to:

  • Identify employees who serve as models to the community for professional achievement;
  • Reinforce Queens College’s commitment to recognizing outstanding performance;
  • Respond to reported employee satisfaction levels for employee feedback and recognition;
  • Promote a sense of community by providing formal opportunities to celebrate employee accomplishments.
