Spartans Stepping Beyond Update

Spartans Stepping Beyond, our online recognition program, has been an opportunity to recognize or thank a fellow Spartan who made a difference on campus. Since we started the program almost ten years ago, many of you have participated and highlighted the ways your fellow Spartans have stepped up to help you or others on campus.

We would like to take a moment to express our heartfelt gratitude for your unwavering dedication and hard work that continues to drive our Spartan community forward.

As we strive to continuously improve our programs and initiatives, we have made the difficult decision to temporarily suspend our Spartans Stepping Beyond program. We want to assure you that this decision in no way diminishes our appreciation for your exceptional contributions and the value you bring to our community!

We are committed to taking this time to reevaluate and enhance our recognition program, ensuring that it becomes even more meaningful and impactful when reintroduced later this year.

Thank you for your understanding, patience, and ongoing commitment. We appreciate you and look forward to the day we can reintroduce a revamped Spartans Stepping Beyond that truly reflects the outstanding contributions of our exceptional campus community.
