Board of Regents Staff Awards

Dear Colleagues:

The Board of Regents Staff Award is the highest honor bestowed on staff within the University System of Maryland. Each year, the board recognizes several employees in the following areas: 

  • Exceptional contribution to the awardee's institution and/or unit 
  • Outstanding service to students in an academic or residential environment 
  • Extraordinary public service to the University or greater community 
  • Effectiveness and efficiency 
  • Inclusion, multiculturalism, and social justice 

If you know a colleague who goes above and beyond, a colleague whose work serves this institution and its people consistently and exceptionally well, please consider nominating him or her for this award. Each awardee receives a $2,000 stipend and is invited to a special recognition ceremony hosted by the Board of Regents. 

Visit this Staff Senate page to review the award criteria and to nominate a colleague today. Nominations are due by Monday, Nov. 25.

I know what exemplary staff we have here at UMB, because I have the privilege of working with you every day. I hope the entire University System will soon know of your accomplishments as well.


Jay A. Perman, MD
