UMBC is fortunate to have so many talented and dedicated Exempt and Non-Exempt staff working to support our mission. This year in particular, our staff have displayed exceptional creativity, resourcefulness, and resilience as our University community has come together to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic. Staff worked tirelessly to support our transition to the new realities of online teaching and learning, implement telework, and transform our physical campus to promote health and safety.
Each year, we encourage administrators, faculty, and staff to nominate staff members for one of these prestigious awards:
UMBC Presidential Distinguished Staff Awards
University System of Maryland Board of Regents Staff Awards
Jakubik Family Endowment Staff Award
Karen L. Wensch Endowment Award for Outstanding Non-Exempt Staff
Given the outstanding contributions of our staff during this unprecedented time, we ask that you reflect on the work within your units and across the campus and nominate a colleague. This process gives both UMBC and the University System of Maryland the opportunity to recognize exemplary work at our University. We are eager to honor our colleagues and need your help to do so.
Descriptions of the individual awards and the eligibility requirements for each, as well as the nomination form, can be found at 2020-21 Staff Awards. Each nomination should include the nomination form, a single letter of recommendation, and the nominee’s resume or job history form. Nominations should be sent by October 30 to Colleen Rebeiro in the Office of the Provost at firstname.lastname@example.org.We hope the entire UMBC community will engage in the nomination process. If you have questions about the staff awards, please contact Sarah Shin, Associate Provost for Academic Affairs, at email@example.com.
