KALAMAZOO--Nominations for the spring round of WMU's semiannual Make A Difference awards are due by Sunday, Feb. 28.

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 receive 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 for Make a Difference awards 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

Nomination forms are available year round on WMU's Make a Difference Web site. They may be submitted online, by e-mail to Make-A-Difference@wmich.edu or by campus mail to Mail Stop 5217.
