Community Service Awards Nomination Deadline Nears

Published: April 2, 2010

Nominations are being requested for the 2009-10 Community Service Awards. There are four awards per year – one each to CSULB students, faculty, staff, and alumni.

The Community Service Awards recognize and encourage service by members of the CSULB family to the community within which they live. The awards are sponsored by the Academic Senate, the Staff Council, the Alumni Association, and the Associated Students.

For qualification, a wide range of service activities are eligible, including political, religious, and social activism. In all cases, sustained involvement and especially significant results will be considered. Special attention will be given to noteworthy accomplishments within the past 12 months. Preference will be given to unpaid volunteer service which is not part of one’s normal and expected occupational duties. Eligible nominees include CSULB faculty, staff, students, and alumni (including all former students and friends of the university). Self-nominations are encouraged and awardees may reapply five years after receiving an award.

A nomination form must be completed with the required narrative description. One letter of recommendation of support is required, but as many as three may be submitted. Nominations will be judged by a committee selected by the sponsoring group and deliberations of the committees will be confidential.

Nominations for faculty, staff and students must be submitted by U.S. mail or hand-carried to the appropriate location listed below by noon Monday, April 12.
