Nominations will be received at the Office of Equal Opportunity/Staff Affirmative Action at Torrey Pines Center South, Room 370. All nominations must be received by Tuesday, October 1, 1996. Electronic nominations will be considered provided all nominating materials and personal electronic endorsements from the nominators are received by the deadline. Please send your nominations to Irma Martinez at imartinez@ucsd.edu.
A committee has been appointed to review nominations and will consist of a representative from each Vice Chancellor unit.
Nomination Criteria:
1. Individuals who have made a noteworthy contribution in one or more of
the following areas: equal opportunity, affirmative action, and diversity. For example, staff volunteers who tutored disadvantaged youth in the community, individuals who have actively participated and helped promote staff through the mentorship/sponsorship program, and
supervisors who have diversified their department's workforce through outreach and hiring.
2. Departments that have actively supported or initiated programs in the
areas of equal opportunity, affirmative action, or diversity. For example, participation in programs such as the Rotation Program or Summer Youth Program, and development of an affirmative action/diversity training program.

of women or people of color over a period of time. This criteria will also consider the number of placement goals that they have met during this period.

representation of other protected groups, such as people with disabilities, special disabled veterans, and Vietnam-era veterans.
