Staff Excellence Award Guidelines

A. Making a Nomination for a Staff Excellence Award

Faculty, staff, students, and the general public may submit a nomination form for eligible staff members. A maximum of four recommendation forms are accepted for each nomination, and they must be attached to the original nomination form for consideration. If more than four recommendations are received, the nomination form, and recommendation forms are returned to the nominator to decide which four to use.

The nomination form has four distinct areas that must be completed in order for the nomination to be accepted:

a. A brief description of the overall job responsibilities of the nominee written by the nominating party
b. A statement of 100 words or less describing the outstanding traits of the nominee written by the nominating party;
c. Job history at the University of the nominee obtained by the nominating party.
