Staff Awards

Staff Awards

UMD created the Unit Staff Awards to recognize exceptional service in leadership on the job, customer focus, and quality of service. Performance that merits the award reflects a high level of dedication to the University, campus, unit, and department.

SCSE consistently has a strong turnout of very thoughtful nominations and we encourage people to continue in this effort. In addition to accolades, recipients receive a $250 cash award.

A link to the nomination form will be posted here when available. Award winners are chosen twice a year during the spring and fall semesters.
