Celebrating Our IST/OCIO STARs

July 17, 2019

Dear Colleagues,

Please join me in congratulating the 2018-19 IST/OCIO STAR award recipients listed below for their accomplishments. It’s an impressive list and underscores the many good things that so many people do on a day-to-day basis to support the University.

Particularly in light of the year-after-year budget cuts, it’s a real tribute to all of you that we continue to make significant progress, such as exemplified by these awards. I want to thank each and every one of you for the sustained progress and hard work.

Through the UC Staff Appreciation and Recognition (STAR) program, we have the opportunity to acknowledge and reward exemplary performance and contributions by individual employees or teams each year. In IST/OCIO, achievement award nominations are reviewed on an annual basis in late spring. Each of you also have the option to thank or celebrate a colleague throughout the year by nominating them for Spot Awards or Pay It Forward

Please save the date Tuesday, Oct. 22 (link adds event to your bCal) for our annual reception to recognize award recipients and welcome new employees across our One IT family.

Again, thank you for your hard work, dedication, and service to the UC Berkeley community!

Regards,

Larry
