The presentation of the awards and the public announcement is still in the planning stages. More information will be available in May.
The presentation is expected to be virtual. This change to the award program will preserve critical university funds as part of expense reduction efforts due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We apologize for any inconvenience this change causes. The university remains committed to recognizing the amazing impact that our staff makes especially now.
Thank you to everyone who submitted a nomination to highlight the remarkable work being done here at U-M. And to the nomination review committee, our deepest gratitude for reviewing and evaluating all the fantastic submissions. And finally, congratulations to all recipients. We thank you and will celebrate you soon.
The Staff Impact Awards
The awards celebrate those who champion volunteerism and service within the university — going above and beyond by taking on additional challenges. It honors staff who are wall-breakers and bridge-builders — people who find ways to collaborate across units and find solutions to make the workplace better for us all. It seeks to recognize staff, supervisors, and teams that make an impact with their work, locally and beyond. And it celebrates the innovative, as well as those who support flexibility in the workplace.
Presidential Recognition for Innovation
In 2018 the President’s Staff Innovation Award Program was added to the Staff Impact Awards. This means there is a single nomination process for staff and teams to be eligible for Staff Impact Awards and presidential recognition for innovation, now called the President’s Staff Award of Distinction. Individual and team winners of the presidential award will be selected from nominations that best exhibit meeting criterion 5: "Outside the cube” innovations in process, product, method, or systems.
For an example of a successful nomination, see this PDF document of Staff Impact and President's Staff Award of Distinction recipient Project Healthy Schools. Also, take a look at this video about a Project Healthy Schools partnership with the School of Kinesiology.
