New award to honour long-standing service by staff
By Communications Staff
February 03, 2014
The university Senate recently approved a new award intended to recognize long-standing, extraordinary service by staff – the President’s Distinguished Service Medal.
The award recognizes the staff member’s ‘breadth of impact’ – contributions above and beyond what would normally be expected in the nominee's primary role at Western.
Although the award is intended primarily to recognize administrative staff, faculty may also be recognized for work or achievements that would not normally be covered by the professor emeritus designation or other service awards already in place.
Nominees must have been retired/resigned from the university in any capacity (including Board or Senate membership) for at least one year prior to consideration and have no ongoing formal relationship with the university.
The Honorary Degrees Committee will consider nominations. The award will be conferred by the chancellor at convocation.
Deadline for nominations is Friday, March 14.
8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.
