The WVU Cancer Institute Employee Recognition Awards Committee is now accepting nominations for its annual Employee Recognition Awards Program.
If you would like to nominate and recognize excellence amongst our faculty, members, staff, employees and Cancer Service Line staff members who devote their professional lives to cancer prevention, care or research in any and all capacities, please use this easy online nomination form. It has been revised to make it easier to nominate and recognize excellence in our colleagues.
This year a new Team award has been created to recognize a team of 3 or more individuals who demonstrate our values of collaboration, innovation, accountability and service to others.
Nomination applications must be submitted by July 15, 2018. The review committee will be comprised of last year’s awardees. Award recipients will be notified in late early summer, 2018. The celebration honoring the recipients will be held during a Tea Time in the Cancer Institute.
Awards will be given in the following categories of excellence in any of our guiding principles:
