Announcing the Winners of the 2014 Chancellor’s Award for Staff Excellence (Thursday, May 14, 2014)

To the Campus Community:

Rutgers–Camden is rightfully recognized for the extraordinary research and teaching achievements of our faculty, and for the dedication, focus, and entrepreneurial spirit of our students.

It is equally true that our staff colleagues consistently set new standards for excellence at every level on a daily basis.  Across Rutgers–Camden, staff members facilitate opportunities for faculty; help students to advance their goals; connect members of the community with Rutgers resources; maintain meaningful engagements with our alumni and friends; and so much more.

The annual Chancellor’s Award for Staff Excellence in Service spotlights and applauds the extraordinary efforts of colleagues who, as individuals and in teams, exemplify our efforts to advance Rutgers–Camden as the campus where the world-class Rutgers experience is delivered in a personalized manner.
