Staff Excellence Awards

The College of Arts & Science Staff Excellence Awards recognize staff who have provided outstanding service to faculty and students or who in other ways have significantly advanced the mission of the college during the previous academic year. There are three divisional awards, each with a $1,000 bonus, and one college-wide award with a $2,500 bonus. Awardees also receive an engraved plaque and are nominated by the college for Vanderbilt's Commodore Award. Faculty and staff can submit nominations for the award, and the dean makes the final selections.
