UMatter Staff Recognition Individual Awards

"Staff at the University of Michigan have a strong desire to make a difference, and I am continually inspired by their creativity, passion and their commitment to our mission."

Mark Schlissel
University of Michigan

The UMatter Staff Recognition Program is a special program that acknowledges the tremendous efforts and contributions staff make to the University of Michigan. UMatter provides individual recognition for outstanding service and actions for more casual day-to-day performance.

Any U-M regular staff member may be nominated for a UMatter award by anyone within the University community.

Michigan Medicine patients and family members should use the Making a Difference award form to recognize service by a U-M employee. 

Nominations are reviewed and recipients are selected monthly. Awardees receive a specially designed, gold UMatter pin as well as a certificate and a kudos is submitted to the University Record. The pins are distributed to the supervisor of the awardee for presentation.

The UMatter award committee welcomes your comments and suggestions.
