To: UCSC Staff and Faculty

From: Staff Advisory Board

We regret to announce that due to a technical error, all of the Thumbs Up Awards nominations submitted until late Thursday, February 7th were not saved in the database. We have sent an e-mail to each submitter for which a nomination was received confirming their details. If you submitted AFTER 5:00 on Thursday, February 7th, you don't have to worry, and please disregard this letter.

Please note that due to this problem, you will need to re-submit your nomination. We have extended the submission date to Monday, February 25th. To re-submit your nomination on-line, visit or you can download a paper nomination at the SAB website at

Again, please accept our sincere apologies to those who will have to replicate their data entry work!

A "Thumbs Up" Award is a small form of recognition that can be given to an individual UCSC staff member, a team, or an academic in an administrative role (Dean, Dept. Chair) for special service she or he has rendered as a member of the campus community. Each nominee is a winner! To make your nomination on-line visit or visit the SAB website at

Awards will be distributed in mid March. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at
