Nominees sought for Service Excellence Award

By Staff

The University of Colorado Staff Council (UCSC) is seeking nominations of classified staff and professional exempt employees for the annual Service Excellence Award. The honor is presented to one qualified individual from each campus and system administration who has provided outstanding volunteer service to the campus, community/civic/professional activities, and the university as a whole through involvement in staff issues, committee work, teamwork, professional development of peers, and community relations.

The Service Excellence Award, including a $1,000 cash prize, will be presented to honorees during the All Staff Council Conference on April 13 in Colorado Springs.

Any active, certified, classified staff or professional exempt employee of the university, excluding the current members of UCSC, is eligible to receive this award. Nominations will be accepted from any staff, faculty, student or administrator within the university.

Nominations will be judged on the candidate’s service not directly related to the employee’s job duties: Service to the employee’s home campus (50 percent), service to the community/civic and professional organizations (30 percent), and service to the university (20 percent).

Nominations packets of no more than 10 pages must be received by Friday, March 9, and must include a completed nomination describing the nominee’s service, a description of the nominee’s job, and a letter from the nominator and one additional letter of support from a staff member, a faculty member, or an administrator, based on the award criteria.

The nomination form and eligibility and judging criteria can be found on the UCSC website at The staff council will review and verify nomination information before choosing recipients.
