Want to Sing Someone's Praises?

Nominate a Staff Colleague for a 2021 Infinite Mile Award!
Deadline is Friday, April 2, 2021

The MIT-SHASS Infinite Mile Awards honor those who have gone "the extra mile" in their contributions to the School! There are no restrictions on who may nominate a member of our staff for an Infinite Mile Award.


Beyond Categories
Our staff are supportive, hardworking, and have a broad representation of skill-sets and roles that help our School run smoothly. Thus, starting in 2021, you no longer need to try and fit a great colleague into a particular category. Instead, you can simply nominate and celebrate colleagues who have gone "above and beyond" in their roles and work.    

• March-April: Nominations are open
• April: Selection Committee (composed of past award winners) meets
     to discuss nominations and determine award recipients
• May: Recipients notified
• May-June: Virtual celebration (more to come!)
