Call for nominations for the 2023 Excellence Awards + Collier Medal

October 27, 2022
Ramona Allen, Vice President for Human Resources |

To the members of the MIT community,

Each year, I look forward to announcing the opening of nominations for the MIT Excellence Awards and Collier Medal. Staff members at MIT work every day to fulfill the goals of their units and the mission of the Institute. The Excellence Awards and Collier Medal are among our highest staff honors—and one of our most important ways to recognize employees for their contributions and celebrate their accomplishments.

I encourage you to consider those individuals and teams whose work has made a positive impact, and submit a nomination for the 2023 MIT Excellence Awards (for staff members) or the Collier Medal (for any member of the MIT community). Submissions are due by Thursday, December 8, 2022.

The Human Resources website includes information for submitting a written or video nomination. In addition, nomination writing help is available free of charge to all members of the MIT community through the MIT Writing and Communication Center. If you have questions, you may contact Cori Champagne, MIT Recognition Program Administrator, at 617-253-5986 or at

Though the Excellence Awards and Collier Medal celebration will be held in 2023, the process begins now with your nominations. I hope you will take the time to recognize your colleagues—and I look forward to seeing you next spring at the awards ceremony.
