The Joe Paul Rising Star Award

The Joe Paul Rising Star Award

Dr. Joe Paul quickly made his mark in 1976 when he began in his first role as Assistant Director for the R.C. Cook Student Union and was quickly promoted to roles including Dean of Student and Vice President for Student Affairs. The Joe Paul Rising Star Award recognizes new employees who, like the award's namesake, also have hit the ground running by displaying exemplary efforts toward advancing the division's mission and vision through our values of Civility, Education, Engagement, Integrity, and Wellness. All DSA full-time employees hired within the last two years are eligible for nomination.
