Outstanding Professional Employee Award

The Professional Employees Advisory Council (“PEAC”) seeks to raise the awareness of the campus community about the contributions that professional employees (both represented and non-represented) make to the quality, diversity, and overall mission of the University of Maine. This year two awards will be given to professional employees whose actions and achievements beyond normal work responsibilities have provided outstanding service to their fields, the University of Maine, and the community as a whole.  In recognition of each employee’s accomplishments and contributions, a cash stipend of $1,000 is presented to each award recipient.

A professional employee must be nominated by another University of Maine employee.  In order to be eligible for consideration, each nominee must meet the following minimum requirements:

Selection of award recipients will be based upon the nomination submittals that best reflect the following criteria:

  1. Demonstrating a dedication to serving others.
  2. Maintaining the highest level of professional services and standards within their disciplines or areas of responsibility.
  3. Helping to create a better campus environment for students, faculty, and staff.
  4. Have demonstrated public service through significant contributions to:
    • their field (e.g., professional associations, committees, and boards)
    • the University of Maine (e.g., university committees and councils), and
    • their community (e.g., schools, nonprofit organizations, and government).

Two professional employees will be selected by the Professional Employees Advisory Council to receive awards, which will be presented at the Employee Recognition and Awards Ceremony.
