PRESIDENTIAL PUBLIC SERVICE ACHIEVEMENT AWARD

2007 Nomination Guidelines

Criteria of Excellence

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.

Documentation and Selection

The Nominator will compile a dossier for consideration by the Public Service Award Committee.
