Last Call for Chancellor's Citation Award Nominations

UMass Amherst wordmark

Nominations for the 2020 Chancellor’s Citation Award, which honors outstanding work performance by university staff, are being sought through Friday, Feb. 21.

The awards committee will be looking for examples of original contributions to the university, attainment of high-priority university objectives, performance “beyond the call of duty” and achievement of significant improvements in productivity or savings in university operations. In keeping with longstanding tradition, 10 awards (including up to two team awards) will be conferred this year.

The award recognizes the importance of acknowledging the hard work, ingenuity and dedication of our peers–whether working individually or in teams–who have made exceptional contributions to the university’s mission and goals.

Nominations for this award, which is designed to recognize the work of benefitted (GIC-eligible) university staff members, are encouraged. A recognition event for award recipients will be held on Thursday, April 30.

The nomination form is online and can be submitted to via email to Lauren O’Boyle at, faxed to (413) 545-0483 or delivered to Whitmore Administration Building, room 325.

For additional information please contact Lauren O'Boyle at telephone 413.545.6948 or e-mail at
