The deadline for the submission of nominations for the 2012 Walter Barnard Hill Award for Distinguished Achievement in Public Service and Outreach, the Walter Barnard Hill Fellow Award for Distinguished Achievement in Public Service and Outreach and the Public Service and Outreach Staff Award for Excellence is Sept. 30.
The Office of the Vice President for Public Service and Outreach administers these annual awards.
The Hill Award honors outstanding public service and outreach work by UGA faculty members. A maximum of five Hill Award recipients will each receive a medallion and a framed certificate.
The Hill Fellow Award recognizes sustained, distinguished and superb achievement in public service and outreach at UGA and contributions to improving the quality of life in Georgia or elsewhere. Designation as a Hill Fellow is comparable to a distinguished professorship, and only previous Hill Award winners are eligible for appointment as a Hill Fellow. In addition to other tokens of appreciation, the appointee will receive a supplementary fund for use in the advancement of his or her program of work.
The Staff Award for Excellence is the most prestigious award for PSO staff members. It recognizes individuals who have demonstrated a strong work ethic, commitment to service and exceptional job performance. Staff Award recipients (no more than three) will receive an engraved memento and a framed certificate.
The awards will be presented at the Public Service and Outreach Annual Meeting and Awards Luncheon on April 16 at the Georgia Center for Continuing Education Conference Center and Hotel.
