Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Sonoma State University has transitioned to remote instruction for fall 2020. Employees are working remotely in almost all departments. Email is the best way to communicate with our faculty and staff. Please see the SSU COVID-19 site for more information.

Applause Program

Applause Award Program The Applause Award Program provides all members of our community with the ability to nominate an individual or group of staff, administrators, faculty, or student staff who demonstrates behavior which exemplifies performance related to the program criteria. This is an easy way to say Thank You to someone that has made a difference in your work life. Your nomination will be posted on the main Employment Services site with a picture when available and published in WorkPlace, and the nominee will receive a certificate of recognition.

Examples of when an applause award may be appropriate is when an employee:

  • Goes beyond the call of duty
  • Assists without being asked
  • Completes a task in a manner that allows others to more easily complete their work
  • Performs exemplary work or support for a special event or campus function
