All faculty and staff are invited to submit nominations electronically or by mail by April 10 for the President's Medal and the President's Distinguished Service Awards (click on links to view past recipients), which will be conferred at the Faculty and Staff Convocation on Sept. 13.
The President's Medal is the highest honor the University of Maryland bestows. It is intended to recognize the accomplishments of an outstanding member of our community who has made significant contributions to the advancement of the university. Both faculty and staff members are eligible.
The President's Distinguished Service Awards recognize exceptional performance, leadership and service by a university staff member. A maximum of five Distinguished Service Awards will be given, and nominees will be considered for an award only in the category for which they have been nominated.
The President’s Awards Advisory Committee will review all nominations and make recommendations to UMD President Darryll J. Pines, who selects the award recipients.
Maryland Today is produced by the Office of Marketing and Communications for the University of Maryland community on weekdays during the academic year, except for university holidays.
