Make a Difference award nominations due

Oct. 9, 2009

KALAMAZOO--Nominations for the fall round of Western Michigan University's semiannual Make a Difference awards are due by Saturday, Oct. 31.

Make a Difference is a campuswide peer-to-peer program that recognizes WMU staff members for their outstanding accomplishments and daily investment of energy and creativity. It features semiannual and annual awards that go to employees who provide exceptional services to the University.

Every fall and spring, semiannual awards are presented to a maximum of 15 people. Those selected for the accolade are presented with a $250 prize and certificate, are recognized at a special reception, and may be nominated for one of four annual Make a Difference awards that carry a $1,000 prize.

Employees may receive the semiannual award more than once, but may not win more than one of these awards each academic year. The annual award, which may be received only once, goes to each year's four most outstanding semiannual award winners.

Nominations are accepted for individuals from the following five employee groups:

  • Administrative Professional Association
  • American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees
  • Michigan State Employees Association
  • Police Officers Association
  • Professional Support Staff Organization
