Bravo Employee Recognition Program

Bravo Recipients by Fiscal Year: FY2018 | FY2017 | FY2016 | FY2015 | FY2014

What is the BRAVO program?

We believe our employees are our most valuable assets, and the Financial Affairs BRAVO Employee Recognition Program celebrates and honors their successes that help the UTSA community grow and achieve its goals.

  • Each quarter, the BRAVO program awards outstanding performance by an employee or team by recognizing those who embrace and demonstrate the Business Affairs Guiding Principles in performing their jobs. These employees represent the spirit of the BRAVO program.
  • All nominees will receive the BRAVO Gold Star.
  • The top two nominees will also receive a Rowdy Dollar Card to be used at any venue across campus (cards are taxable income to the recipient).
  • The BRAVO award recipient will also receive a Financial Affairs shirt and a framed certificate, and will be featured in the Financial Affairs website and nominated for the Business Affairs employee recognition award.

Financial Affairs employees, UTSA students, and other members of the UTSA community can nominate Financial Affairs staff - an individual or an entire team - for the award. All Financial Affairs staff members, including directors, are eligible for nomination.

The BRAVO nomination process is much easier and less time consuming than with previous programs because of the new BRAVO nomination form. The form is based on attributes that demonstrate the Business Affairs Guiding Principles:

  • WE RESPECT and care for each other;
