Full-time employee nominees will have successfully completed any probationary period and be in good standing with the institution. Full-time nominees shall have at least three years of full-time employment with the institution. Part-time employees in a non-student position shall have one full year of employment with the institution. No award will be given to an employee who has received the PACE Distinguished Employee Award in the previous five years. (Refer to past distinguished employees for a list of past award recipients.) See the complete description of the criteria for the Distinguished Employee Award.
The information provided with the nomination is reviewed carefully and given more consideration than multiple nominations for any particular employee.
