The Excellence Matters Faculty and Staff Reward and Recognition Program is designed to recognize the tremendous efforts and contributions faculty and staff make to the University of West Florida. Excellence Matters provides individual employee recognition for outstanding service and actions that exemplify UWF's core values - caring, integrity, quality, innovation, teamwork, stewardship and courage. Excellence Matters rewards employees who put UWF's standards of ambassadorship, communications, courtesy, flexibility, helpfulness, knowledge, ownership, professionalism, responsiveness and safety into action.
