harvardheroeslogo-new1Harvard Heroes is the University’s recognition program that spotlights and celebrates the mission-focused achievements and extraordinary contributions of a select number of Harvard staff each year. You can find more information about the program by visiting the Harvard Heroes webpage.

We encourage everyone to participate in this year’s program by reviewing the selection criteria and nominating a fellow HLS colleague by Friday, March 6. All administrative/professional, support and hourly employees with at least one year of benefits-eligible service are eligible to be nominated.

Nominations can be submitted electronically using the online form, which will enable multiple nominators to submit a single nomination. All HLS nominees must be endorsed by their respective department head and/or faculty manager in order to receive full consideration for this award. The HLS Harvard Heroes selection committee will review all nominations submitted by the March 6 deadline and select two (2) nominees to be recognized at the award ceremony and reception on June 11 in Sanders Theatre.
