Nominations Sought for President’s Medal and Distinguished Service Awards

By Maryland Today Staff

The President's Awards Advisory Committee is seeking nominations for awards to be conferred at the Faculty and Staff Convocation on Sept. 14. There are two categories of awards: the President's Medal and the President's Distinguished Service Awards.

The President's Medal is the highest honor the University of Maryland bestows upon members of its community, recognizing outstanding faculty and staff members who have made significant contributions to the advancement of the university.

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. Individuals serving on the advisory committee are not eligible for nomination.

Nominations in all categories should be submitted online or by email to or via mail by May 13.

The committee will review all nominations and make recommendations directly to President Darryll J. Pines, who will then select award recipients.

The list of past President's Medal recipients and President's Distinguished Service Award recipients reveals an array of dedicated and accomplished individuals.
