Distinguished Staff Awards, nominate outstanding staff members by January 23

The Distinguished Staff Award, the university’s highest honor for staff, recognizes staff members who have made an impact at The Ohio State University. The annual award honors 12 outstanding staff members for their significant leadership, accomplishments and service to the university.

Award recipients are selected based on their individual contributions to the following: enhancing the quality of work life for colleagues or customers; providing outstanding service to university stakeholders; developing creative solutions to increase department or university operations; and demonstrating one or more of the university’s values.

Recipients are honored at an awards luncheon ceremony in April and on the field during an Ohio State football game. Each recipient will receive a $1,500 cash award, an increase of $700 to his or her base salary and trophy.

Eligibility includes all part-time and full-time staff with a minimum of five years of continuous service at The Ohio State University in a regular, non-faculty position. Previous recipients of the Distinguished Staff Award are ineligible for nomination.

The nomination deadline is Monday, January 23, at 5 p.m.
