Nominations requested for Awards of Distinction

Each year, the University recognizes employees for outstanding service to Emory with the Awards of Distinction. This year's Awards of Distinction will be presented by President Bill Chace on March 14.

Nominations must be submitted by Wednesday, Feb. 7. All regular general staff and presidentially-approved principals who have worked at the University for at least one year are eligible to be nominated. Since hospital employees have a separate internal recognition program, they are not eligible. Nominations can be made by a faculty or staff member; employees may not nominate themselves.

Nominations should reflect consistent excellence in job performance, service and contributions to the work environment beyond the call of duty, and exemplary personal qualities that have enhanced public regard for the overall effectiveness of a department.

Nominations must be submitted to the head of the department, school or division in which the candidate works. The department head then recommends a candidate by submitting a 500-word recommendation to the selection committee, offering specific examples of the nominee's performance or contributions. Recommendations must be sent to Employee Services, Human Resources, or faxed to 727-2746. For more information, contact Bonita Swain at 727-7591 or Mary Smith at 727-0423.
