Pillars of Excellence
This program is designed to acknowledge employees who demonstrate a sustained high level of performance and inspire others to do their best. This program may be used by departments as “colleague to colleague” recognition or by managers/supervisors to recognize an employee or a team for outstanding performance. To nominate an employee or a team, please use a Pillars of Excellence Award form, which is coming soon.
Nominations are forwarded to Human Resources/Equal Opportunity & Outreach. All nominations are reviewed by a Recognition Committee, which will include faculty and staff representatives. Successor committees will be made upon previous year award recipients. All nominees will receive a citation acknowledging their nomination. Award recipients will be selected based on criteria which will align with the UMass Lowell Pillars of Excellence:
- Transformational Education
- Global Engagement and Inclusive Culture
- Innovative Research and Entrepreneurship
- Leverage Our Legacy and Our Place
- Entrepreneurial Stewardship In Higher Education
Each year, all award recipients will be invited to a reception with their managers and member of the Executive and Senior Cabinet to receive a certificate and personalized gift. These award recipients will also be recognized in Today@UMass Lowell.
