Nominations Welcome for President’s Medal and 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. 15. There are two categories: 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 a member of its community, recognizing a 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 to or via mail by May 7.

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