Today, we’d especially like to recognize members of our staff who have demonstrated outstanding service to our university and their colleagues, and a commitment to improving our workplace. Therefore, it is with great pleasure that we share with you the recipients of our inaugural Terrapin Innovation and MVP Impact Awards.
