Nominations being accepted for School of Medicine dean’s service awards

If you have a co-worker in the School of Medicine who deserves recognition, consider nominating him or her for this year’s Dean’s Distinguished Service Award, the highest honor awarded to a medical school staff member. Nominations for the 15th annual naming of a Dean’s Distinguished Service Award recipient, as well nominations for research support and operations staff awards, are being accepted through Feb. 28.

To be eligible for the Dean’s Distinguished Service Award, the nominee must be a full-time staff member with a minimum of three years of continuous service. The award recognizes an employee for displaying ongoing commitment to exceeding job responsibilities, helping to create a positive working environment, and improving the community in which he or she lives. The winner receives a $1,000 prize, a personalized award, acknowledgement on the dean’s plaque and recognition in the Record.

To be eligible for awards recognizing research support (involving basic science and clinical research) and operations staff (involving administrative, facilities and teaching positions), nominees must work at least 20 hours per week. These awards recognize employees for exceptional performance, outstanding leadership and superior quality of service. Winners receive $500, a plaque, acknowledgement on the Service Award plaque and recognition in the Record.

Nominations must be submitted to Human Resources, Campus Box 8002, by Feb. 28. Winners will be recognized during employee appreciation activities in June.
