Employee Award Program

University Libraries established the award program in 2004. The award selection committee reviews nominations and chooses the winners. Nominations can be submitted by any college employee in 3 award categories: Exemplary Employee Award, Bright Idea Award, and the Project Implementation Award for a team effort. Winners receive time off with pay, Lobocash and a certificate presented at the annual award ceremony. The awards have been broadened to include all three units within the College.

Hulsman Outstanding Student Employee Awards

These awards, established in 2018, recognize student employees for outstanding performance, initiative, reliability, quality of work, attitude, and overall contribution to the College and its users. Student winners receive a cash prize as well as college-wide recognition for their efforts.

The College of University Libraries and Learning Sciences sincerely thank UNM Alumni, Jim and Mary Lois Hulsman, for supporting our student recognition and engagement efforts. We are grateful and celebrate Mr. and Mrs. Hulsman for generously donating nearly $1 million to our college since 2007. 

Student Employee Graduates

The College of University Libraries & Learning Sciences employs over 100 students during the course of the school year. Student workers are vital to nearly everything that we do, whether the effort involves processing library materials, ensuring smooth business operations for UNM Press, assisting library users at our service desks, or helping with outreach and recruitment for our OILS academic program.
By the time our student employees graduate, they have developed important skills and attributes that will help them succeed wherever their future pursuits may take them.
