Nominations sought for annual service prize

Oct. 21, 2002

KALAMAZOO -- Western Michigan University faculty and staff are encouraged to submit nominations for the 2002 Distinguished Service Awards. The deadline for nominations is Monday, Nov. 11.

Up to two awards may be made each year, in the program that began in 1980. When two awards are made, one goes to a WMU faculty member and the second goes to a member of the staff.

The awards are made for service that affects a significant segment of the University community in one or more of the following areas: service through innovative and effective programs which are academic or related to some facet of University life; service in areas and organizations that contribute to the growth and stature of the University; or service that extends the impact and presence of the University in larger communities.

Recipients receive an honorarium of $1,500, and an adjustment in base salary of $1,000. All current, continuing full-time faculty and staff who have at least five years of service are eligible. Nomination forms can be picked up in Room 3310 of Schneider Hall.

Nominations and questions can be sent to Beth Hoger, chairperson of the Distinguished Service Award Committee, by campus mail to her at 3310 Schneider or by e-mail to <beth.hoger@wmich.edu>.
