President's Excellence Award Guidelines

Making a Nomination for a President's Excellence Award

(Formerly Staff Excellence Award)

Faculty, staff, students, and the general public may submit a nomination for an eligible staff member. A minimum of two and a maximum of four recommendations will be accepted in support of each nomination. A nomination with fewer than two recommendations will not be considered. If more than four recommendations are received, the first that were submitted will be the ones that are used.

The nomination web form must be completed in full for the nomination to be accepted. This form requires:

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.

No staff member can be nominated for a President's Excellence Award if they previously won the award. Staff members may be nominated year after year, but only one nomination per employee can be accepted each year.

If any part of the nomination form or recommendation form exceeds the stated number of words the form may be automatically disqualified.
