BROCKPORT, NYóThe College at Brockport, State University of New York, is the recipient of several prestigious statewide awards. Its Offices of Human Resources and Payroll have received three Payroll Achievement Awards for the fourth consecutive year. And its Financial Aid office is the recipient of a New York State Best Practices Award by the New York State Financial Aid Administrators Association.
The Offices of Human Resources and Payroll won the Empire Award, which is given for the best composite performance over five years statewide; the Outstanding Performance Award, which is given for the best composite performance in the fiscal year; and the Gold Star Award, which is given for the best composite performance over five years agency-wide.
The Payroll Achievement Awards are based on the performance measures developed by the NYS Payroll Users Groupís Performance Measures and Standards subcommittee and the Bureau of State Payroll Services to evaluate the performance of State agency payroll offices. Awards are based on a composite score of transactions submitted for on-time appointments, on-time separations and post-deadline submissions.
The Financial Aid office was recognized for its Student Peer Advisor Program. The program trains selected students over the summer months to prepare them to serve as resource personnel in the Student Aid Resource Center during the academic year, assisting students and their families regarding all aspects of financing a college education. A career ladder for returning peer advisors has been established, resulting in over 15 past peers obtaining careers in the financial aid or higher education professions.
