Nomination Process

Each nomination must be submitted using the online form.  If an incomplete form is received prior to the deadline, the nominator will be contacted to complete the form correctly.

Each nominee must have one nomination.

After the nomination period closes, the Recognition Committee will examine the potential candidates. The committee chair will ensure that all of the nominations follow the process guidelines and that there are no descriptors used that compromise anonymity. The Recognition Committee, not including the chair, may narrow the choices down to half (or a minimum of four) of the original nominee pool by rating each nominee on a 7-point Likert scale. If the original nominee pool does not exceed four nominees, the committee will not screen. The Executive Committee of Staff Senate will select the final award recipient.

Selection Criteria

The selection process will be based on the following information:

  • Ability to complete quality work with a positive attitude

  • Effectiveness of completing tasks

  • Positive interaction with staff/students/faculty/vendors
