Nominations typically open in February and remain open for approximately six weeks (FY24 nominations are open and will close on March 15, 2024). The HR Engagement team collects all nominations and shares them with selection committee members individually. The universitywide committee is made up of universitywide staff of varying hierarchy levels. We thank them for their efforts in helping select awardees each year. The selection committee has two weeks to review and provide top choices for each award category. When all selections are received, the nominee with the highest number of votes is selected as the winner and vetted with Employee Relations to confirm good standing with the department/school and the university. Winners, their supervisors, as well as business managers of winning departments/schools, are then notified. Universitywide recognition occurs in late spring.
