The Office of Multi-ethnic Student Education (OMSE) invites the University of Maryland community to submit nominations for university faculty, staff, tutors and mentors who have made outstanding contributions to advancing the inclusive excellence of multi-ethnic students on campus. 

Nominees will be judged on their service to and involvement with multi-ethnic students in the areas of teaching, tutoring, mentoring, and staff support. The letter of nomination should answer the following questions:

1. Brief, current biographical information about the nominee. 

2. Discuss the nominee's contributions to advancing the inclusive excellence of multi-ethnic students at the University of Maryland to include three specific accounts of substantial activity in the past two years. Please include dates. 

More specifically, discuss the following as it relates to their service at the University of Maryland: 
-How the individual gives freely and unselfishly of their time to multi-ethnic students and/or multi-cultural community activities
-How the nominees inspires multi-ethnic students and acts as a role model
-How the nominee has had a positive impact on the academic success of multi-ethnic student(s)
-How the nominee improves the lives of others

Note: Current staff members in the Office of Multi-ethnic Student Education are ineligible for the award in the areas of faculty, mentor and staff. However, OMSE tutors are eligible in the tutoring category. Additionally, nominations should come from someone other than the nominee. Incomplete nominations will not be accepted. 

Winners in each category will receive a service medal at our 2020 OMSE Academy of Academic Excellence Awards on March 12, 2020 at 5:00 p.m. in the Grand Ballroom of the Stamp Student Union.
