Call for Awards of Distinction nominations

If you know an University employee who you feel deserves recognition for outstanding service and contributions to the Emory community, why not nominate him or her for an Award of Distinction?

All regular staff and "presidentially" approved principals employed for at least one year are eligible to be nominated. Employees of Emory Hospitals are not eligible for this program.

Nominations should reflect consistent job excellence and cite examples of how the employee has demonstrated the following:

  • service and contributions in the work environment that have been rendered above and beyond the call of duty.
  • ·exemplary personal qualities that have enhanced the overall effectiveness of or public regard for the services provided by the department or University.

Nominations can be made by faculty or staff. Employees may not nominate themselves, nor can previous recipients, retirees, faculty, faculty equivalents or librarians be nominated. All nominations must be typed, limited to 500 words and endorsed by the head of the department, school or division in which the nominated employee works. The department head must submit a written recommendation on each person to the selection committee.

A department/school/division can have no more than five nominees.

All nominations must be sent to Patricia Douglass, assistant vice president, Human Resources, 1762 Clifton Road, or via fax to 404-727-2746. Deadline for nominations is Friday, Jan. 21, 2000. For more information, contact Employee Relations at 404-727-7625.
