DFM Annual Awards Nomination Form

Each year we celebrate those among us who have worked especially hard the past year making untold contributions to the various mission areas in which we work and beyond. The Executive Committee selects the year’s honorees by reviewing nominations received on behalf of an individual in the award categories below. Nominations are solicited a month before the Annual Spring Fling, however, we can also accept nominations on an ongoing basis. Please spend some time reflecting on the efforts of your colleagues, and consider submitting a letter of recommendation for those you believe to be ‘stand-out’ candidates—deserving of special acknowledgment and celebration for their commitment and hard work. All letters of nomination are filed as part of our faculty and staff’s permanent records and can be useful in promotion.


For a description of each award category, please scroll to the bottom of the form.
