Penn State Human Resources is now accepting nominations for the Faculty and Staff Achievement Awards (FSAA) for 2019. These awards, given annually, recognize the efforts of faculty and staff who go beyond their basic duties to bring about positive and lasting change to the University and/or to the community.

The six awards that comprise the FSAA are:

  • The Barash Award for Human Service
  • The McKay Donkin Award
  • The Dr. James Robinson Equal Opportunity Award
  • The Award for Administrative Excellence
  • The Staff Excellence Award
  • The Support Staff Award

To submit a nomination or learn more about eligibility and criteria for each award, visit the FSAA website.

Once a nomination is submitted, the nominator is asked to upload a letter of support for the nomination, and then select up to three individuals to contribute supporting documentation for the nomination. These individuals will receive an email, within two days of the nomination, that describes the award and the documentation to be submitted.

All Penn State faculty and staff are encouraged to nominate a fellow Penn Stater for an award. The deadline for nominations and supporting documents is Monday, November 19.
