STAFF EXCELLENCE AWARD NOMINATION PROCEDURES
The Staff Excellence Award Committee is now accepting nominations for the 2023 Staff Excellence Award.
All Kent State Stark faculty and staff are eligible to nominate staff members who they feel meet the Three Areas of Excellence:
|WORK ETHIC / DEPENDABILITY||COMMITMENT TO UNIVERSITY / CAMPUS||INTERACTIONS WITH CAMPUS COMMUNITY / ATTITUDE|
Please be detailed and descriptive in your nomination. Simply submitting a person's name is not sufficient and will not be considered by the committee. Although there is no set minimum or maximum length for your nomination, please consider the criteria the committee will use to determine award recipients. Nominations that fully address each of the three areas of excellence will likely result in higher scores than those lacking details and examples.
- Each person must be nominated separately. Do not nominate pairs or groups of individuals. Group nominations will not be considered.
- Full- and part-time employees are eligible to be nominated.
Deadline to submit nominations is Friday, March 3, 2023, at 5 p.m.
