Employee Recognition

Employee Recognition Programs

UMass Dartmouth has a long, proud tradition of educating students who achieve success and make a difference in their communities and around the world. Your job, whatever your job, helps us to accomplish that goal. Your knowledge, skills and attitudes touch our students daily and your valuable contributions make UMass Dartmouth a remarkable University.

UMass Dartmouth recognizes the contributions of every employee to the overall mission and strategic plan of the University. Our Employee Recognition Programs are designed to encourage opportunities for those efforts to be acknowledged and celebrated.

Chancellor’s Annual Service Awards Celebration ‌‌

The Chancellor’s Annual Service Awards Celebration enables us to demonstrate our appreciation to  faculty  and staff who have served our students over the years and with particular distinction. Employees reaching  milestone  anniversaries (10 years, 15 years, 20 years, etc…) are honored at an  annual  ceremony and  presented with gifts.

 Chancellor’s Award Recognizing Excellence in Service (CARES)   

‌‌‌The University’s most valuable resource is its highly talented and dedicated workforce who provides  quality service to the students, the campus community and external constituents on a daily basis. On  many occasions, individuals go above and beyond to deliver an extraordinary level of customer  service. Because the university values and promotes a culture of service excellence, it believes that  these individuals should be recognized and honored. As such, CARES was created to recognize and  honor faculty and staff on a monthly basis who demonstrate an extraordinary level of service  excellence.

Additional information about  the CARES program and nomination forms can be found here.
