Employee Recognition

The Lone Pine Recognition Program provides a variety of ways in which we recognize staff for their outstanding contributions to Dartmouth: an awards program, personalized notes of appreciation, staff snapshot, and a summer social event.  

This comprehensive program aims to foster a deeper culture of appreciation across campus by recognizing the efforts of our colleagues; promoting collaboration and teamwork; acknowledging the value of diversity and inclusion; and honoring staff who excel at their jobs and exhibit behaviors that model the core values of the College.

The 2022 nomination period is now closed. The 2023 nomination period will open in November 2023.

Lone Pine Excellence Awards

These excellence awards recognize staff members, with at least one year of service, who have demonstrated specific criteria related to each award category, that go beyond their basic job description, and support Dartmouth's Core Values.

Sheila Culbert Distinguished Employee Service Award

Dartmouth's flagship award recognizes a staff member, with at least five years of service, who consistently demonstrates exceptional qualities in the course of their work.  

Social Justice Awards

These awards were established to recognize individual alumni, faculty, staff, and student groups for their commitment to causes of social justice, civil rights, peace, education, public health or environmental justice. 

Employee Service Awards

Each year, the President of the College and the Chief Human Resources Officer have the privilege of honoring long-serving, non-faculty employees.
