Staff Awards

SEAS Staff Recognition Award

The SEAS Staff Recognition Award is given each year to recognize staff members who have performed beyond assigned responsibilities, have earned the clear respect of co-workers, have inspired excellent performance from others, have served students and faculty devotedly, and have contributed in an extraordinary way to achieving the aspirations of the School.

This year's winner is Doug Yates, Director of the Nanoscale Characterization Facility in the Sinch Center for Nanotechnology.

Doug has been a member of the Penn community for over 14 years. He shares his knowledge and expertise freely with students, faculty and staff. His work generosity knows no limits and he is always willing to assist. He has probably learned and forgotten more about microscopy than most of us will learn in a lifetime and yet he remains humble and modest, but always with quiet confidence. One letter stated, "Doug is not just a model of dedication, creativity and leadership for SEAS employees but he is the type of employee who stands out across the University," while another stated, "His expertise, encyclopedic knowledge of electron microscopy, keen sense of the state of the art, and eagerness to collaborate enables some of the some of the most advanced research in the world.”
