The Staff Advisory Distinguished Service Award (DSA) is a way to appreciate staff members for their merits at OSU. This award allows other staff members to nominate someone who goes beyond the call of duty, enhances ones career and personal path and represents OSU in a positive aspect.



Anyone may nominate a staff member from any department or unit. While members of the Staff Advisory Council are not eligible for nomination, they may nominate other staff members. However, nominations from SAC members who serve on the Awards and Recognition committee will not be considered.

The nominee must be an OSU-STW staff employee who is employed at .75 FTE or greater and has not received a top 3 finalist Distinguished Service Award in the last 5 years.

To nominate a staff member, complete the nomination form below. Each nomination requires three recommendation letters. You may provide one letter of recommendation but the other two must be from members of the OSU community via the recommendation form link below. Recommendations may be submitted after the nomination form closes as long as all three are submitted by the deadline October 25, 2023.

Nominations are now closed for the 2023 Distinguished Service Award.
