Call for Nominations: President's Caring Bengal Award

Members of the campus community are invited to submit nominations for the President’s Caring Bengal Award by 5:00 p.m. Monday, October 1. Please visit the award website for more information about the award criteria and the award recipient selection process, and to submit a nomination.
Award Description
Each of us knows a faculty member, staff member, or administrator who transforms the work and personal lives of their colleagues by supporting them with compassion, care, respect, and collegiality. These caring colleagues in our community can be found at every level of our institution and although they create positive work experiences for each person they encounter, their contribution to our community sometimes goes unnoticed. To recognize these supportive colleagues in our community, each month faculty, staff, and administrators across all ranks, unions, and titles can be nominated by a colleague or student to receive the Caring Bengal Award.

The Faculty and Staff Recognition Committee, which includes faculty and staff representation from UUP, CSEA, the College Senate, and the Professional Staff Caucus, will review award nominations and select the award recipient each month. Each month, award recipients will be announced by me in the Daily Bulletin, will receive a gift, and will be invited along with their supervisor to a lunch with me at the end of the semester.

Our Previous Winners:

March 2018: Julie Wholf
April 2018: Maria Garrity
May 2018: Barrett Gordon
