Nominations are now being accepted for the annual "Thumbs Up" awards, sponsored by the Staff Advisory Board.

The program is held once a year in the spring and is a great way to recognize deserving staff. The deadline for nominations has been extended until Friday, May 13.

Thumbs Up awards can be given to an individual UCSC staff member, a team, or an academic employee in an administrative role (such as a dean, department chair, etc.) for service she or he has rendered as a member of the campus community.

"UC Santa Cruz requires a cast of thousands, but some of the best work on campus goes on outside the spotlight," UCSC Associate Chancellor Ashish Sahni said. "These Thumbs Up awards–in addition to our annual presentation of the Outstanding Staff Award–is a great way for us to recognize those who do so much for this university."

Nominations may be made at
. Please limit your text to 50 words in the form.

Awards will be emailed to nominees in June.  If you have questions about Thumbs Up please feel free to contact us at
