Recommendations and rules:
- Nomination statements should be detailed, fully developed, and include specific examples. The Catalyst Award Subcommittee may not be familiar with your nominee or their contributions, therefore, it is important that this information is presented in the nomination statement.
- It is recommended that nominators prepare their nomination statements to the noted questions in advance on a Word document and then paste their responses into the online form. This will allow the opportunity to make any necessary edits. Only completed nomination will be considered.
- Representatives serving on the Committee for Campus Inclusion (CCI) are eligible to be nominated for an award. However, appointed members of the CCI executive subcommittee are not eligible to be nominated for an award.
- Supporting documentation may be requested for final nominees. Nominees may be contacted by the CCI with a request for additional information.
- A CCI Award is a one-time honor; therefore, previous Award recipients are ineligible to receive the same award a second time.
- Award categories are utilized for evaluation purposes only. The number of honors awarded each year will be determined by the executive subcommittee. As such, multiple awards may be given in across one category. The executive subcommittee also reserves the right to not award in all categories.
