2016 Rosemary Schraer Mentoring Award Information


The Rosemary Schraer Mentoring Award, created in June 1994, recognizes a University employee for mentoring by advising, facilitating, encouraging and/or paving the way for others to recognize and realize their potential in both personal and professional endeavors. The family, friends, and colleagues of Dr. Rosemary Schraer, a former associate provost of Penn State and former chancellor of the University of California, Riverside, established the award.

Consideration will be given to any employee (administrator, faculty, technical service or staff member) who has a record of outstanding mentoring service that goes beyond the requirements of his/her employment duties and responsibilities. View list of past awardees.

All nominations and supporting documents must be submitted online with the nomination form no later than Wednesday, February 10, 2016.

No late materials will be considered.

Earlier submissions are appreciated.

Please include a narrative of endorsement supporting your nomination of this individual for the Rosemary Schraer Mentoring Award. Provide specific examples to illustrate how the nominee meets or exceeds the criteria, and highlight accomplishments that demonstrate how the nominee has helped others to recognize their potential both professionally and personally. Indicate why you believe the nominee’s accomplishments are the most outstanding and give examples of impact. (No more than two pages, double-spaced, please).

In addition, you are strongly encouraged to include statements of support for the nomination. Statements may be from peers, subordinates, superiors, or mentoring recipients. Supporting documentation is limited in length on the nomination form. Please do not send books, brochures, curricula vitae, résumés, or other lengthy documents.

Note: Employees must be in good standing to be considered for commission awards. For University activities such as commissions and award programs, a faculty or staff member is considered to be in ‘good standing’ if the individual is meeting the expectations of his/her position and has not been the recipient of recent discipline. The individual should also exhibit qualities such as civility, collegiality, and a commitment to the overall success of his/her department.

Applications will be reviewed by the Commission for Women. Thank you.
