Chancellor's Exceptional Service Bonus Program for Non-Unit Employees

All non-unit staff members contribute, in varying ways, toward advancing UMass Amherst’s mission as a premier research university and center of academic excellence. The objective of the chancellor’s Exceptional Service Bonus Program is to provide special recognition awards to those non-unit employees (exempt and non-exempt) who have accomplished extraordinary achievements within the workplace. It is designed to complement feedback from the annual performance review, to provide a financial reward in addition to other pay programs, and to recognize significant accomplishments that advance university and departmental goals.

The authority to award exceptional service bonuses is delegated annually from the Chancellor to each member of the Senior Executive Management Team which includes the Athletic Director, Chief Information Officer, Provost, and the Vice Chancellors for Administration and Finance, Student Affairs & Campus Life, and University Advancement.
