Nominations Sought for President’s Medal, President’s 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. 13. There are two categories of awards:

The President's Medal is the highest honor the University of Maryland bestows upon a member of its own community. It is intended to recognize the accomplishments of an outstanding faculty or staff member who has 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 electronically or via mail by March 31.

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

A list of past President's Medal recipients and President's Distinguished Service Award recipients reveals the array of dedicated and accomplished individuals who have been honored with these awards.
