CARE, Celebrating Achievements and Recognizing Excellence, is a formal employee recognition program at the Ohio University Heritage College of Osteopathic Medicine for administrative staff, classified staff and faculty.

Peers and students nominate individuals whose performance embodies the college’s mission, vision and values and enhances a culture of collegiality within their office and the greater college community.

Every quarter, the CARE Team will review the nominations and vote for one recipient each from administrative staff, classified staff and faculty to receive the CARE award. The three quarterly award recipients will receive a certificate of award in recognition of their achievements.

  1. Nominees must be Ohio University employees assigned to the Heritage College of Osteopathic Medicine.
