About the UNLV Top Tier Award
The UNLV TOP TIER AWARD honors employees for outstanding contributions to UNLV and its mission to be a Top Tier University. While everyone associated with UNLV works toward fulfilling our mission, the efforts of some present an outstanding example of commitment. The UNLV TOP TIER AWARD pays tribute to these people.
Each year, (1-2) awards of $1,000 will be presented to employees that best reflect our accomplishments in each of the 5 core areas including:
- Student Achievement
- Community Partnerships
- Infrastructure and Shared Governance
- Research Scholarship and Creative Activity and
- Academic Health Center
