The Department of the Month Award was initiated by the Employee Recognition Committee and Staff Senate as a way to recognize each month a department on campus that stands out in a positive way, be it for sponsoring an event, providing excellent service, exercising teamwork, showing unique initiative, or for other beneficial reasons.
The Department of Music has shown true leadership by pulling together when a colleague, Dr. David Nabb, suffered from serious illness. They have worked to make his burden lighter as he recovers; even the department's students sponsored a benefit concert for Dr. Nabb. The department's genuine concern and assistance are examples of some of what makes UNK a great institution.
The department is also routinely involved with their students, especially with recitals and performances, helping each one individually achieve in their musical pursuits.
For this, the UNK Staff Senate and its Employee Recognition Committee congratulate the Department of Music for a job well done and for upholding the university's commitment to excellence.
