Call for Nominations: 2013 Helen Shaw Award for Staff


The College of New Jersey Staff Senate, under the direction of The College of New Jersey Foundation, is accepting nominations for the 2013 Helen Shaw Staff Excellence and Special Achievement Award. Nominations are due by 4 PM on Tuesday, May 28. Visit for details.

This annual monetary award recognizes an extraordinary activity or service to the College community by an individual staff member or group of staff members.

The Helen Shaw Staff Excellence and Special Achievement Award was established by the Helen Shaw Endowment in January 2003as a memorial in honor of Helen D. Shaw, Class of 1936. The award recognizes the essential role TCNJ staff members play as full partners in the College’s educational process and institutional activities, and acknowledges their commitment to varied models of excellence that display the dedication and breadth of staff contributions to the College.

Nominations should focus primarily on a staff member’s contributions during the academic year prior to the nomination. On-going contributions that span several years but continued through the past academic year will be considered. Supporting material regarding prior years may be considered in exceptional circumstances.

Nomination forms, eligibility information, award criteria, and submission instructions are available at
