Award Selection

Nominations will be evaluated by the multi-disciplinary Volunteer Recognition Committee. Committee decisions are final.

Award Announcement

Award announcements will be posted in the Bulletin, at least two weeks before the Volunteer Recognition Event.

*A note regarding Groups/Organizations: While we salute the tremendous work and significant impact provided by many groups of UM/UMHS employees, their family members, and friends who offer their skills and expertise beyond the boundaries of UMHS - out in the community and across the world, the intent of this award is to honor a volunteer group who goes beyond their job description to contribute directly and signficantly to UMHS patients and families. Therefore, those who volunteer as an extension of one's job responsibilities are not eligible for this award. We sincerely commend those who do this, however!
