Sheila Culbert Distinguished Employee Service Award

The annual Sheila Culbert Distinguished Employee Service Award was established by Jim and Susan Wright in 2008 to recognize a Dartmouth College staff member who has made a difference to the College and to his or her colleagues; demonstrates a commitment to the highest work ethic and exemplary work performance; is both selfless and unwavering in dedication to the institution; and is relentless in the pursuit of excellence.

Supervisors and co-workers, as well as staff from other departments, faculty, and students, are welcome to nominate employees for the award.  The honoree will be announced and acknowledged at the annual Employee Service Awards dinner.

All non-faculty employees who have completed five or more years of service and who are currently in salary grades up to and including PDL C are eligible to be nominated for the Sheila Culbert Distinguished Employee Service Award. Criteria include:

  • Demonstrated commitment and contribution to the mission and core values of the College;
  • Consistent and excellent job performance;
  • Initiative, innovation, and leadership in the workplace; and
  • Effective and responsible use of time, money, technology, personnel, and other resources for the benefit of the College.
