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 Industrial Technology Department provided a unique opportunity for students in its program by sponsoring an exchange with the Rostock University in Germany to construct a model home, introducing the frame construction format to northern Germany. German students came to Kearney and assisted our students in working on a Habitat for Humanity home. The opportunity for UNK students for travel, sharing ideas and concepts, and leadership is commendable.
For all their hard work and for all they do in the regular course of their work, the UNK Staff Senate and its Employee Recognition Committee congratulate the Department of Industrial Technology for a job well done and for upholding the university's commitment to excellence.
