The University of Colorado Staff Council (UCSC) is seeking nominations of classified and university staff members for its annual Service Excellence Awards, which honor outstanding volunteer service to the university and to community, civic and professional organizations.
The deadline for nominations has been extended to Feb. 12 at 11:59 p.m.
The awards will be presented to one individual from each campus and system administration during the All Staff Council Conference on April 8 in Colorado Springs. Each of the recipients receives the award, a plaque commemorating the event and a $1,000 prize.
Any active classified staff or university staff employee is eligible to receive the award, and nominations will be accepted from any staff, faculty, student or administrator within the university. Active employees of the university at the time of the nomination, excluding the current members of UCSC, are eligible to receive the award.
Nominees will be judged in two, equally weighted areas: service to home campus or the university, including participation in campus programs or committees; and service to community, including participation in a community group or working to address a social issue. Activities that are part of an employee’s job description or assigned duties should not be included in the nomination.
The nomination process has been streamlined this year and must be completed electronically. All nominations will be reviewed by UCSC members. Award recipients will be selected based on stated criteria. Any nominations that do not meet eligibility criteria will not be considered.
