Nominations for the 2015-2016 CSI Dolphin Awards

All members of the College community are invited and encouraged to submit nominations for the 2015-2016 Dolphin Awards. The deadline for submission is 5pm Monday, March 7, 2016.

The Dolphin Award, instituted in 1980, is given by the President to select faculty, staff, and students in recognition of their contribution and achievements. The awards are bestowed annually and are formally presented on the day of the College’s Commencement.

For all Dolphin Awards, the committee will consider length of service, a sustained contribution over many years, or an exceptional recent contribution. A detailed statement of the achievements of the candidate should support nominations. Nominators are encouraged to provide only those supporting documents that are relevant to the category. In all cases, any records related to personnel information (i.e.; salary information or an official review by the candidates supervisor) should not be included in the nomination package.
