2023 Chancellor's Outstanding Staff Awards now accepting nominations!

January 5, 2023

Nominations are now being accepted for individual staff members and/or teams of staff for the 2023 Chancellor's Outstanding Staff Awards!

The Chancellor's Outstanding Staff Awards have been a Berkeley tradition since 1988, acknowledging the great distinction and excellence achieved by Berkeley staff through their daily contributions to the campus and beyond. The COSA awards recognize staff who have demonstrated exceptional initiative in at least two of the following areas:

  • Fostering an equitable and inclusive community
  • Innovation, adaptation, and efficiency
  • Enhancing Berkeley's mission and reputation
  • Berkeley's sustainability goals
  • Mentorship

Any member of the campus community, including staff, faculty, and students, may submit nominations for either individual or team awards. You may nominate any current Berkeley staff member who has been employed at the university for at least one year for this honor; individuals with academic or executive tier titles are not eligible. Past nominees and recipients have come from all campus divisions and represent all levels and classifications.

To nominate an individual or team, please complete the online nomination form linked from the COSA website. Your nomination must be received no later than 5:00 p.m. on Tuesday, February 28, 2023.
