Recognition – Service Awards - Presidential Public Service Achievement Award Recipient

Since 1982, in recognition of the mission of public service at the University of Maine, the President has annually presented the Presidential Public Service Achievement Award to an individual University of Maine faculty or professional staff member in a teaching, research, and/or public service unit who has demonstrated distinguished achievement in public service.

Public Service is the application of the special knowledge and skills associated with one’s professional life at the University of Maine to enhance the public good, whether through public education, direct assistance in specific situations, or long-term commitment towards achieving particular public service goals. Hence, the definition excludes some forms of “community service,” such as serving as a scout leader or participating in other service activities that do not necessarily require one’s professional expertise or specialized knowledge of the University. However, this definition is meant to include service that advances the effectiveness of or contributes to the mission of the University even if it doesn’t require the discipline-specific expertise of the nominee.
