Nominations for the 2020 Sarah Belle Brown Community Service Award are now being accepted through Sept. 28. 

Presented by President Garnett S. Stokes, each year the award is given to a faculty member, staff member and student who have demonstrated extraordinary commitment to community service by volunteering their time and expertise. 

“This year in particular, when everything, it seems, is a challenge, I’ve been constantly inspired by the selflessness and compassion of our UNM faculty, staff, and students in helping others and positively motivating their communities through these uncertain times,” said Stokes.

There’s even a cash prize for each recipient, generously endowed by UNM Regent President Doug Brown and his wife Sarah Belle Brown. If there’s a UNM faculty member, staff, or student who amazes you with their generosity of time and volunteer spirit, nominate them for the award.

Faculty: Must be tenured faculty or on a tenure-track, clinical educator, or lecturer.
Staff: Must be employed at least .50 FTE and passed the probationary period.
Students: Can undergraduate or graduate, but must be enrolled in a degree program and taking a minimum of 6 credit hours.
