MIT Excellence Awards and Collier Medal Ceremony Mar. 11

March 10, 2015

Please join your fellow MIT community members on Wednesday, March 11th in honoring the 2015 recipients of the MIT Excellence Awards and the Collier Medal. Everyone at MIT is invited to attend and celebrate the outstanding accomplishments of our colleagues in Kresge Auditorium from 3 pm to 4 pm, followed by a reception in Krege Lobby until 5 pm. The MIT Excellence Awards acknowledge our community members’ extraordinary efforts to put MIT’s goals, values and mission into action. These are among the highest honors that MIT awards to staff. Professionalism, commitment to best practices, and high standards of excellence are at the heart of these awards. The Collier Medal was created to honor the memory of Officer Sean Collier. On April 18, 2013, Officer Collier was shot and killed while protecting and serving MIT. In honor of Sean’s model citizenship, which far transcended the duties of his job, the Collier Medal will be given to an individual or group whose actions demonstrate the importance of community.
