The Tufts Distinction Awards are an important way to recognize the exceptional accomplishments of staff and faculty and affirm our shared values as a community. We encourage everyone to participate, and we hope you will take some time to reflect on who among your colleagues is due for some well-deserved applause. The entire Tufts community is invited to join in by nominating candidates. Winners are chosen by a Selection Committee of staff and faculty from across the university. At the end of each academic year, the whole university community is invited to celebrate the winners of the annual Distinction Awards at a ceremony led by the President.
Tufts Distinction Awards winners will have demonstrated their commitment to the betterment of the Tufts community through dedication to professionalism, teamwork, and the value of service. This program complements the recognition programs already in place in many academic and administrative areas.
