Dear campus community,
I am pleased to announce that nominations are now open for the 2020 Peter E. Haas Public Service Award. Given each year, the award recognizes a Berkeley alum who exemplifies our institution's commitment to the public good and whose volunteerism has had a profound impact in one of four areas: community and social service, health care, education, or the environment. The deadline for nominations is January 17, 2020.
Established in honor of the late Peter E. Haas '40, a generous campus benefactor and longtime volunteer himself, the award comes with a $20,000 cash prize as well as $20,000 to be donated to a charity of the winner's choice. The honoree is also asked to speak at our campus's commencement ceremony on May 16, 2020.
Visit https://awards.berkeley.edu/peter-e-haas-public-service-award for information on how to submit a nomination, and please contact Lila Blanco at firstname.lastname@example.org or (510) 643-7003 if you have any additional questions. Thank you for considering those in your network for this honor, and thanks as well to the many Berkeley alumni around the world whose volunteer work contributes to the betterment of society.
If you are a manager who supervises UC Berkeley employees without email access, please circulate this information to all.
