Dear Colleagues:

I write to request nominations for the Chancellor’s Award for Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and/or Transgender (GLBT) Leadership. This award recognizes contributions to the advancement of the GLBT communities at UCSF. The nomination form, award criteria, and a list of prior recipients are available online. Three individuals—one faculty/academic, one staff, and one student/resident/postdoctoral scholar—will be selected to receive this award at a special ceremony on Monday, June 13, 2011. Individuals who meet one or more of the award criteria—whether or not they are gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender—are eligible to be nominated.

I encourage you to take the time to nominate the outstanding individuals with whom you are associated who meet these criteria. Nominations must be returned by 5:00 p.m. on Friday, April 15, 2011 to the GLBT Leadership Award Committee, c/o Suya Colorado-Caldwell, either electronically via [email protected] or in hard copy to Box 0402.
