CRITERIA FOR THE AWARD
> Excellence in overall job performance is the primary criterion for the award. The term
“performance” in this context is defined to include:
> ACHIEVEMENTS - Candidates who have by way of their day-to-day activities effected
special accomplishments that have demonstrated positive benefits or support for the
University and its members as well as significant contributions to the goals and objectives
of their work units.
> PROFESSIONALISM - Candidates who have regularly exemplified professionalism in
their working relationships and contacts within and outside of the University community.
> Service may enhance a nomination but is not a requirement. Nominators should note that
“service” encompasses activities where candidates represent and promote the university
in a positive manner. More importantly, candidates should possess a positive and
supportive attitude toward the entire University community and general public in the
administration of their daily duties. Evidence of dedication, responsibility, leadership, and
dependability heightens a candidate’s qualification.
