Beth Wells is Assistant Vice Provost for Academic Affairs at UMBC.
Do you know a UMBC staff member whose outstanding contributions as a community change agent deserve to be recognized? The Provost’s Office and Staff Awards Committee are delighted to invite students, faculty, and staff to nominate a staff member for a University System of Maryland Board of Regents Award in the category of “extraordinary public service.” The criteria for this award are:
- The individual has demonstrated personal dedication to a project or cause that has definitively improved the greater community
- The staff member has, in a collaborative and sustained manner throughout his/her career, made a difference in the larger community
- There is a sustained record over a period of years of the staff member making contributions through his/her role in the University (rather than as a private citizen)
We hope you will help us to recognize the important contributions of staff members working to improve the quality of life for others at UMBC or in the larger community. Winners of Board of Regents awards receive $1,000 and a plaque, as well as recognition at UMBC’s spring faculty and staff awards ceremony. You can help create a ripple effect of community engagement by nominating a staff member whose creativity, skill, and commitment as a change agent offer a model to all of us in the UMBC community.
Nominations in all categories of staff awards are due on September 14, 2012. Information about all categories of awards, the nomination and selection process, and the simple forms needed to submit a nomination can be found at http://www.umbc.edu/provost/StaffAwards/.
