Public Service and Outreach award nomination deadline

Nominations are being accepted until Sept. 28 for the 2013 Walter Barnard Hill Award, the Walter Barnard Hill Fellow Award and the Outreach Staff Award for Excellence.

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 be selected; each will receive a permanent salary increase.

The Hill Fellow Award recognizes sustained, distinguished and superb achievement in public service and outreach at UGA and contributes 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. 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. A maximum of three staff award recipients will receive an allowance to be used for professional development. 

The awards will be presented at the Public Service and Outreach Annual Meeting and Awards Luncheon April 15 at the Georgia Center for Continuing Education.
