Western Michigan University Make a Difference awards are reserved for Staff Compensation System, AFSCME, MSEA and POA employees. If you know of a coworker or staff member who deserves to be honored for outstanding service to WMU, use one of the options below to nominate him or her for a semiannual award.

A committee of peers will select award recipients based on your comments, not on the individual's reputation, title or position. Provide specific information and use descriptive examples in support of your nominee to assure this person gets the full consideration deserved. For selection criteria and detailed program information, view the program guidelines.

To ensure unbiased selection, your nominee will remain anonymous to the committee throughout the selection process. Therefore, please do not use her or his name in your comments.

Each year, fall nominations are due Oct. 31 and spring nominations are due Feb. 28.
