Dear Campus Community,

Do you have a colleague who has created significant positive impact on the UC Berkeley campus community?

I am writing today to invite nominations for individual staff members and/or teams of staff for the 2016 Chancellor's Outstanding Staff Awards.  The Chancellor's Outstanding Staff Award (COSA) is one of the highest honors for staff at UC Berkeley.

This award recognizes staff who have demonstrated exceptional initiative in at least two of the following areas:

  • fostering an equitable and inclusive community
  • innovation, adaptation, and efficiency
  • enhancing Berkeley's mission and reputation
  • Berkeley's sustainability goals, and
  • mentorship

Past nominees and recipients have come from all campus divisions and represent all levels and classifications. The Chancellor's Outstanding Staff Awards have been a Berkeley tradition since 1988, acknowledging the great distinction and excellence achieved by Berkeley staff through their daily contributions to the campus and beyond.  

Any member of the campus community, including staff, faculty, and students, may submit nominations for either individual or team awards. You may nominate a current Berkeley staff member who has been employed at the University for at least one year for this honor. Individuals with academic or executive tier titles are not eligible. (COSA Awards are non-monetary awards. Full eligibility criteria are found on the COSA website).

Please distribute and post this call for nominations widely throughout your department. I encourage managers and supervisors to discuss this important opportunity to recognize the outstanding efforts of staff in upcoming departmental meetings. You may review the guidelines, frequently asked questions and the nomination forms on the COSA website. If you would like more information about the awards, please email [hidden email] or call <a href="tel:510-642-5532" value="+15106425532" target="_blank">510-642-5532.

To nominate an individual or team, please complete the online nomination form linked from the COSA website. Call <a href="tel:510-642-5532" value="+15106425532" target="_blank">510-642-5532 or email [hidden email] with any questions. Your nomination must be received no later than 5:00 p.m. on Thursday, January 28, 2016.

The Chancellor's Staff Advisory Committee (CSAC) administers this award program on my behalf and will join me and senior administrators in honoring the 2016 recipients at a reception in May 2016.  Please do not miss this important opportunity to recognize and honor the outstanding, hardworking staff who help make Berkeley the exceptional place that it is. Thank you for your support in recognizing outstanding staff at Berkeley.

Best regards,

Nicholas Dirks
