Staff Award Rules and Procedures

This award is open to all categories of full-time university staff members. It is the desire of OCGP to receive up to three (3) nominations per college plus three (3) at-large nominations coming from across campus areas not defined as schools or colleges. These at-large staff nominations will come through the OCGP. The final college nominations must follow the existing college procedures for administering staff awards.
