The 2016-2017 nomination period for faculty and staff is now open and will end on Friday, February 10, 2017 at 5:00 pm. You may enter a faculty or staff nomination for remarkable achievements throughout the year.  Follow the instructions under "it only takes a few minutes" below to submit a nomination.

The deadline is Friday, February 10, 2017 at 5:00 pm. Nominations entered after this date will be considered for the 2017 awards. Feel free to enter nominations all year long for the people that have made an impact, have impressed you with their innovation, have gone out of their way to lend a hand, or that you consider a superstar. This is your opportunity to give back, and acknowledge faculty and staff for their talent, creativity, and dedication. It only takes a few minutes to complete the new streamlined nomination ballot, and provide a brief statement explaining why your nominee should win an award.
