B. Award Programs

1. Excellence awards

This award acknowledges outstanding contribution to the college through individual effort and achievement. Each year it will be given typically to only one or two staff who demonstrate an extraordinary contribution to the college. The award will be in the form of a certificate and a $1,000 cash award. In addition, the award recipient's name is included on a plaque which remains on display at the college.

All staff are eligible for nomination for the award, with the exception of the President's senior staff and past years’ recipients will be ineligible. To be eligible to receive the award, the employee must be employed by the college as of the date the award is to be given. Any member of the Reed community may nominate a staff member for the award. Forms are available online or from the Human Resource Department.

The nomination form should be submitted to the nominee's immediate supervisor no later than the date announced each year. The supervisor will review the nomination form and determine if it will be forwarded to the Excellence Award Committee in care of the Human Resource Department. Supervisors who nominate subordinates may send the nomination to the Excellence Award Committee in care of the Human Resource Department.

Each spring, the President will appoint staff and faculty to serve on the Excellence Award Committee. Their charge is to review the nominations and recommend to the President the names and achievements of the select few who should receive the award. The President will make the final and binding decision as to award recipients.

The college Excellence Award recipients will be announced at the college recognition lunch held each spring.
