What is the President’s Excellence Award?
In 2009, Kent State President Lester A. Lefton established a recognition program to reward staff members who demonstrate their daily commitment to carrying out the university’s Excellence Agenda.
This award recognizes Kent State University staff who have demonstrated exceptional performance in advancing one of the goals of the university’s excellence agenda during the previous fiscal year (July 1, 2010 through June 30, 2011).
Nominations for the 2011 award will be accepted through Sept. 16. Full-time classified and unclassified employees at all campuses who have been employed by the university for a minimum of one year and are in good standing with the university are eligible to be nominated. Past recipients are not eligible to be nominated for a minimum of two years following their award.
Details on the award criteria, the nomination process and the nomination form are available on the President's Excellence Award page. Nominations may come from peers, supervisors or other divisional leaders, faculty or students. Nominations will be reviewed and a final list will be submitted to the Office of the President. The final decision resides with the President and the award recipients will be announced in December. Each recipient will receive a $1,000 award.
