Attendees applauding at 2019 Roadrunners Who Soar Awards.Nominations open today for the 2020 Roadrunners Who Soar Awards. This year, the recognition has evolved to honor and celebrate outstanding individual employees as well as cohesive and effective teams.

The Universitywide Roadrunners Who Soar Awards recognize individual employees who are living our shared CADRE values, supporting student success and serving as ambassadors for Metropolitan State University of Denver in the larger community. Meanwhile, the team awards will highlight core and cross-functional teams that are innovatively pursuing shared goals and creating an environment of empowerment and accountability.

Employees are encouraged to nominate their extraordinary colleagues for either the individual Soar Award or the Team Roadrunner Award. The window to submit nominations will remain open through March 6.

All employees — including faculty, staff, administrators, hourly employees and student employees — are eligible to be nominated for this recognition.

If you know a Roadrunner colleague or Roadrunner team that is contributing positively to the University, impacting student and employee success positively, and embodies CADRE – Community, Access, Diversity, Respect, Entrepreneurship – consider submitting a nomination.

Honorees and their nominators will receive invitations to the Roadrunners Who Soar event in May, where awardees will be recognized among their peers and colleagues. The event will also include a number of other department- and office-level faculty and staff awards, and more nomination information for those awards will be available soon. Stay tuned to the Early Bird for details and contact Lindsey Coulter, employee-engagement and communication specialist, with questions.
