Research STAR Plan

The STAR Plan at UC Berkeley allows supervisors, managers, and other campus individuals to recognize special projects and accomplishments of non-represented and CX represented staff employees.

Please submit nominations for Vice Chancellor for Research (VCR) units only using the online Research STAR nomination form. To prevent delays, ensure that you have communicated with the nominee's supervisor prior to your submission; supervisors will receive an email request to approve the nomination. Please direct any questions to Mel Mejia, via email.

A staff committee will continue to review Achievement Award nominations then forward its recommendations to the VCR for final approval. An internal VCRO panel will review and process Spot Award nominations as we receive them.

Upcoming Research Deadlines:

TBA for FY21

You may submit nominations any time between now and the current deadline. The committee will make final decisions on all submissions within a few weeks after each deadline. The VCRO will notify Managers, Supervisors and Nominators of employees who have received an award.  Award packets will be emailed to managers, and checks will be processed for the MO pay cycle end dates in May.
