To recognize the exceptional Connecticut College staff, President Bergeron created this awards program with Staff Council in 2014. The campus community is fortunate to have staff members whose commitment and professionalism provide an invaluable foundation to the College. The Presidential Staff Recognition Program honors these valuable contributions and highlights the vital support that staff provides.

These awards are one way to celebrate how important the staff are in fulfilling the College's mission to educate students to put the liberal arts in action as citizens in a global society.
