Staff Award Rules and Procedures

Purdue University’s Office of Global Partnerships (OGP) and the Global Academic Committee (GAC) seek staff nominations for the Outstanding Leadership in Globalization Award. This award is open to all categories of full-time university staff members.  It is the desire of OGP to receive up to three (3) nominations per college plus three (3) at-large nominations coming from across campus areas not defined as schools or colleges. These at-large staff nominations should be forwarded to the OGP. Final nominations must follow the college/area existing procedures for administering staff awards. Self-nominations will not be accepted.
