A deadly pandemic, severe storms, social unrest—as these events unfolded, a few Cougs took extraordinary steps to help keep the WSU community safe.
It’s time to recognize those colleagues for their leadership.
The WSU Safety Awards Committee is seeking nominations for the 2021 Safety, Health, and Security Awards. These awards honor those who have contributed significantly to our community’s well-being in the past year.
The University encourages faculty, staff, and students to nominate individuals and/or groups for awards.
To do so, visit the Safety, Health, and Security Fair website and complete the nomination form. There you will find selection criteria for each of three award categories: safety, health, and security.
The deadline for nominations is Fri., Oct. 1.
