Nominations for President’s Medal, Distinguished Service Awards Due May 7

By Maryland Today Staff

The President's Awards Advisory Committee is seeking nominations for two categories of awards to be conferred at Faculty and Staff Convocation on Sept. 15: the President’s Medal, and the President’s Distinguished Service Awards.

The President’s Medal, the highest honor the University of Maryland bestows upon a member of its own community, recognizes the accomplishments and significant contributions of a faculty or staff member to the university’s advancement.

The President’s Distinguished Service Awards recognize exceptional performance, leadership and service by a university staff member. A maximum of five awards will be given; nominees will be considered for an award only in the category for which they have been nominated.

Individuals serving on the Advisory Committee are ineligible for nomination.

Nomination forms should be submitted by May 7. The committee will review all nominations and make recommendations directly to university President Darryll J. Pines, who will select the award recipients.
