President's Award for Distinguished Service 

President Barbara Snyder invites you to nominate a non-faculty CWRU staff member for the President’s Award for Distinguished Service. This annual award honors up to three staff members whose outstanding contributions to our campus culture have a transformational effect on university colleagues, students, or visitors with whom they come into contact.

Nominations may come from any university staff, student or faculty member. The Staff Recognition Committee of the CWRU Staff Advisory Council will review nomination materials received from throughout the University, select outstanding candidates, and forward the names of those individuals (along with relevant biographical information) 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 quad side foyer. The recipients will be recognized at the Staff Service Awards Luncheon in June.

Criteria for Nomination

  1. Nominee must be a permanent, non-faculty staff member with a minimum of five years of university service.
  2. Nominee must exhibit qualities that are consistent with a university striving to create a powerful learning environment that has a transformational impact on all who teach, learn, discover, and work here so they are prepared and engaged to serve society.
  3. Should a nominee be a current member of the SAC Staff Recognition Committee, he or she will become inactive during the selection process.
  4. Nominee must not be a previous recipient of the award.

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.
