Recognizing excellence: 2023 Staff recognition awards


There is something special about being recognized and appreciated. 

On 8th of September 2023, the Strathmore University staff members gathered together for the Staff Recognition Awards ceremony, which turned out to be a rousing afternoon of celebrating each others’ achievements.

Drawing inspiration from the biblical story of Daniel and his steadfast companions; Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, Dr. Vincent Ogutu, Vice Chancellor, Strathmore University, highlighted their ethical consistency, remarkable resilience and dedication, and leadership by example. He aptly stated; “ It’s how well you do it.. But how selfless you are while doing it.” 

Awards were given to recognize staff members under three categories;

2️⃣ 0️⃣ The Years of Service Award recognizes staff who have been here since the award of a Letter of Interim Authority to operate as a University in 2002, and 20 years later, are still serving in Strathmore. We celebrated their dedication and loyalty over the last 2 decades

💎The Special Category Award recognized members of staff who have excelled in different categories including service to society, faculty development, wellness, mentoring, environmental conservation, security and support team among others

🤲The Staff Promoted Award recognized those who over the past year have been promoted within or across departments as a direct result of their excellence in their role

Plaques and certificates were handed out as those gathered cheered on their fellow staff members, a true embodiment of the SU value of Collegiality
