Board of Regents Staff Awards
A Council of University System Staff (CUSS) initiative, the University System of Maryland (USM) Board of Regents’ Staff Awards represent the highest honor bestowed by the Board of Regents for achievements of exempt and nonexempt employees from USM institutions.
The awards are presented to individual employees who have demonstrated excellence in one of the following categories:
- Exceptional contribution to the institution and/or unit to which the person belongs
- Outstanding service to students in an academic or residential environment
- Extraordinary public service to the university or greater community
- Effectiveness and efficiency (two categories)
There are two awards given in each category – one exempt employee and one nonexempt employee – for a total of eight awards. Each awardee will receive a $2,000 stipend and a plaque to recognize their award.
Award recipients may be invited to address the Board of Regents.
The initial deadline for nominations is Nov. 11, 2016.
- Any employee may nominate another employee with the knowledge and consent of the nominee. Employees may also nominate themselves.
- Nominees must be staff members of the University of Maryland, Baltimore (UMB).
- Nominees must have been employed at UMB for at least five consecutive years.
- Consideration will be given to sustained performance in the category nominated, which occurred during the past five consecutive years.
- Nominations must be made with the knowledge and consent of the nominees.
- CEOs (chancellor and presidents), officers, and senior leadership are not eligible.
Note: Although commendable, length of service and performance of normal duties do not weigh heavily in deliberations.
