Awarding Great People

The Great People Award recognizes employees whose daily contributions highlight the great diversity of work within the School of Medicine and honors employees whose commitment and values make their jobs a positive experience and the School of Medicine a great place to work. Recipients of the awards represent the wide array of duties and functions performed by School of Medicine workers and are employees whose performance can be characterized by one or more of the following attributes:

  • Contributes to activities, programs or events resulting in tangible added value.
  • Serves as a role model for teamwork and customer service.
  • Makes the School or Department a better place to work by demonstrating a positive, helpful attitude, and by communicating and working cooperatively with others.
  • Shows solid and consistent devotion to the job and work group.
  • Inspires others to excel.

Four employees are honored each quarter from among the many highly valued nominees. Recipients of the Great People Award receive special recognition from the Dean and are rewarded with their choice from a wide variety of Bear Hugs gift cards. They are also honored by their school and departments for the quality and value of their contributions to their workplace communities.
