Workforce Planning & Analysis


The Division of Student Affairs continues to recognize the tremendous work and accomplishments of our employees in transforming students, community, UC Berkeley and the field of Student Affairs. The Division offers multiple types of ways to award outstanding contributions.

  • Achievement Awards have changed from a divisional recognition program for significant one-time accomplishments into a supplement for our merit-based salary compensation for ongoing and sustained achievements. Instead of being decided division-wide, Achievement Awards are now being handled at the AVC level.  Each AVC (David Surratt, Joseph Greenwell and Amy Jarich (Interim) will be handling the Achievement Award process for their respective units internally leveraging performance reviews and other assessments of accomplishments. If you have any questions about this award program, please contact
  • The Spot Award, similar to previous years, recognizes special contributions, as they occur, for a specific project or task, generally for a special contribution accomplished over a relatively short time period. The award amount is $500. In a change, this year, represented clerical employees (CX) are now eligible for the award. If you have any questions about this award program, please contact
  • The Thanks to You “Spotlight” Recognition program is just one of the ways to celebrate successes by appreciating one another's talents and contributions.
  • The STARS Recognition Program is set-up to help advance Student Affairs mission through high quality customer service. If someone you have interacted with has shown true STARS standards (Sincere, Trustworthy, Attentive, Resourceful, and Successful), the employee is eligible for a $25 Amazon gift card!Please note that the STARS program is not funded by the Division and requires the department's Chartstring or Speedtype.
