The WMU Make a Difference awards program is a campuswide peer-to-peer program that recognizes University staff members for their outstanding accomplishments and daily investment of energy and creativity.

Up to 15 staff members may receive the award in each of two semiannual award periods every academic year. All semiannual award winners are eligible to receive one of four annual awards carrying a before-tax prize of $1,200 that are bestowed for the academic year.

Make a Difference award recipients are selected by a committee of their peers from the WMU employee groups that participate in the awards program: Administrative Professional Association; American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees; Michigan State Employees Association; Police Officers Association; and Professional Support Staff Organization.
