Nominations Open for Chancellor's Awards for Staff

The University of Pittsburgh seeks nominations for the 2017 Chancellor’s Awards for Staff. The awards will recognize staff members for performance that has consistently exceeded the standards and expectations of their position, and who also have made a significant impact on the University through their commitment to our institution, our students, our programs, our home communities, and their University colleagues.

The Chancellor’s Awards for Staff are the highest honors the University of Pittsburgh grants to classified and union staff members in recognition of their outstanding contributions to the University. Up to 10 Awards will be granted each academic year. A permanent plaque located in the William Pitt Union will bear the names of the Award recipients. The Awards will recognize the diversity of all ranks of classified and union staff members and represent a cross-section of campus responsibility centers and the regional campuses.

Like the Chancellor’s Distinguished Teaching, Research, and Public Service Awards for Faculty, the Chancellor’s Awards for Staff will provide recognition within the campus community for the accomplishments of our staff members. The award recipients will be announced in the Pitt Chronicle and each will receive a $2,500 cash prize.
