Reminder: Board of Regents Staff Awards

Greetings University Community,

I am reminding everyone that the Board of Regents' Staff Awards nomination process has begun. The nomination deadline has been extended to Friday, Jan. 24.

The Staff Awards represent the highest honor bestowed by the Board of Regents for achievements of exempt and nonexempt staff employees from institutions within the University System of Maryland. If you know a co-worker who goes above and beyond and is worthy of a nomination, please submit a nomination for that employee. You do not need to be a supervisor or a manager in order to nominate an individual. The awards are presented to staff employees who have demonstrated excellence in one of the following categories:

  1. Exceptional Contribution to the Institution and/or Unit

  2. Outstanding Service to Students in an Academic or Residential Environment

  3. Extraordinary Public Service to the University or Greater Community

  4. Effectiveness and Efficiency Regarding an Academic or Administrative Transformation with Savings of $10,000 or more

There will be two awards given in each of the above categories - one for exempt staff and one for nonexempt staff - for a total of eight awards. The winners will receive a $1,000 stipend as well as a plaque.

I know our University community has many exceptional employees who should be recognized for their various contributions. I encourage everyone to please review the attached packet and nominate our worthy staff members for this prestigious award. It would be a great honor for our University to have one - if not more than one - winner of this award.

Award nomination packets are due by Wednesday, Jan. 15, 2014, and can be sent to Colette Beaulieu at cbeaulie@hshsl.umaryland.edu.

Visit the Staff Senate site to obtain a nomination packet and learn more about our Staff Senate at the University of Maryland, Baltimore.

I appreciate your assistance in recognizing our employees and co-workers who are worthy of this prestigious honor.

Sincerely yours,

Jay A. Perman, MD
