The Elizabeth S. Pringle Award is limited to those members of the University Staff who hold Office Support Titles and is awarded on an annual basis. It is issued to a single winner from among the nominees. The nominations are reviewed by a 5 person committee of University Staff Shared Governance called the Awards Selection Committee. This committee meets collectively to determine the winner. The Pringle Award is made possible from a generous grant by Dr. Joel Margolis, an Emeritus Faculty member of the UW-Madison. The Award is named for his Assistant, the late Elizabeth S. Pringle.
