2018 Models of Excellence Award Nominations: October 20

Nominating your coworkers for Penn’s Models of Excellence awards is meaningful way to show appreciation to truly outstanding staff members. Nominations for fiscal year 2018 are open now through October 20, 2017.

The online nomination form is available at the Models of Excellence website.

The Models of Excellence award program celebrates the extraordinary achievements of full- and part-time staff members and teams across the University’s schools and centers.

Awards are given in three categories:

Models of Excellence Award—Recognizing staff member accomplishments that reflect initiative, leadership, increased efficiency and a deep commitment to service.

Model Supervisor Award—Honoring supervisors who contribute to Penn’s success.

Pillars of Excellence Award—Celebrating the important work that weekly-paid staff members do to promote Penn’s success.

Your deserving colleagues can’t receive these awards without your nominations. Being nominated for Models of Excellence is an honor in itself. All nominees receive a certificate of appreciation for their service.

Models of Excellence, Pillars of Excellence and Model Supervisor winners each receive $500 and a symbolic award. Nominees selected for honorable mention receive $250 and a symbolic award. Awards are presented at the Models of Excellence ceremony on April 4, 2018 in Irvine Auditorium. The entire Penn community is invited to attend.
