Employees who have previously received the award are again eligible for a DELTA award after three years from the date of their previous award.
Nominations may be made by any member of the campus community (civil service, academic professional, faculty or student). Please note that members of the DELTA Selection Committee are not eligible to submit a nomination. The nomination of individuals for this award is a three-step process:
Step One - Nomination
First, the nominator must submit the online nomination by the initial nomination deadline December 11, 2015.
The online nomination form requires the following:
In the event multiple nominations are submitted for one employee, the selection committee will select the one nomination for that individual that most closely exemplifies the objectives of DELTA.
Step Two - SelectionThe first round of the process is based on an independent review of the nominations which are rated based on the award criteria. The decision to move a candidate to a finalist is based on the rating and group discussion of the selection committee. This occurs only if seven or more individuals are contenders for the award. Finalists will be chosen and nominators notified if their nominee is a finalist. At that time, nominators will be asked to provide two letters of recommendation. In the individual and supervisor categories, the immediate manager of the nominated finalists is asked to complete a brief set of standard questions, which is also used for input into the decision making process. The name of the nominator will be released to the nominee on request. The nominating papers for each individual should be placed in his or her personnel file.
Award recipients will be selected from among the finalists. All award recipients will be notified of their nominator.
Award CriteriaAwards will be given based on the degree to which the nominee meets the following criteria (nominees within supervisor positions must meet different criteria, listed below):

Selection/Evaluation ProcessExamples and achievements will only be considered if they are related to work in the department and/or at the University.
AwardsUp to six individual awards will be presented. This includes supervisors and non-supervisors.
Each individual and supervisor award recipient will receive $1,500 (after taxes) and a commemorative trophy. Recipients will also be honored at an annual award ceremony.
