Nominate staff for Dean’s Distinguished Service Awards

It’s time to nominate School of Medicine staff for this year’s Dean’s Distinguished Service Award, the highest honor awarded to a medical school staff member.

The award, which includes a $1,000 cash prize, recognizes a full-time medical school employee with at least three years of continuous service who shows commitment to exceeding his or her job responsibilities, creates a positive working and learning environment and improves the community.

The school also is seeking nominations for the research support and operations staff awards.

Those awards honor current employees who perform duties that exceed job expectations and demonstrate outstanding leadership and superior quality service. Each of those recipients will receive $500 in cash.

All winners will be recognized during the Length of Service Awards Program June 21. For more information, visit and click on the Dean’s Distinguished Service Award link or see posters around the medical school.

All nominations are due Feb. 28. A nomination form can be downloaded here.
