Nominate an outstanding staff member for the President’s Award for Distinguished Service

President Barbara R. Snyder invites the campus community to nominate a non-faculty staff member for the President’s Award for Distinguished Service. This annual award honors staff members whose outstanding contributions to campus culture have a transformational effect on university colleagues, students or visitors. Nominations may come from any university staff, student or faculty member.

The Staff Recognition Committee of the Staff Advisory Council will review nomination materials, select outstanding candidates and forward the names and information about those individuals to the Office of the President. The honorees will each receive a $1,000 cash award, their names will be engraved on a plaque that is currently on display in the Adelbert Hall Foyer quad side, and they will be honored at a brunch in June.

Nominations are due by March 19. Download the nomination form. Contact with questions or for complete details.

The President’s Award for Distinguished Service was created in honor of Roseanne Shaerban, a university employee whose qualities and commitment set a standard for distinguished service. Shaerban (May 9, 1958–Feb. 6, 1989) was a friendly and familiar face at CWRU. Her family, friends and co-workers remember her for the care, concern, loyalty and support she demonstrated to the university community.
