Staff Advisory Council

Finest of the Flock


Finest of the Flock Logo 


FGCU’s Staff Advisory Council has created Finest of the Flock, an award that acknowledges staff members (A&P, SP, OPS) for exhibiting exceptional effort that reflects the values and mission of Florida Gulf Coast University.  Finest of the Flock provides a systematic method for informal peer-to-peer acknowledgement of achievements by staff, and a means for publicly announcing such accomplishments to the University Community.

Finest of the Flock recognizes employees who have contributed to the benefit of FGCU, student(s), co-worker(s), guest(s), or to the community, other volunteer or service organization, in the areas of Service, Innovation, or Collaboration. The activity for which staff members are being recognized should demonstrate excellence or exceed the employee's normal job responsibilities to the best of the nominator’s knowledge.

Finest of the Flock is a peer-to-peer recognition program and is a reflection of the appreciation from a peer for an action or accomplishment you achieved.  It is not related to your performance evaluation and is not reflective of your overall performance.
