Of The Months

About OTMs

OTMs are “Of the Months” which are a way to recognize the amazing things going on at your campus. This recognition starts on your campus level and can possibly reach regional and NACURH levels.

 

There are two types of OTMs (individual and program) that have a number of categories which include a person or program that you would like to nominate. Individual OTMs are a maximum of 600 words and should describe the outstanding accomplishments of an individual within that specific month. Program OTMs allow for various types of programs on campus (which occur within a specific month) to be nominated. These OTMs have specific sections with individual word maximums.

Please refer to the NRHH Policy Book and the NACURH Policy Book regarding the in the NRHH awards section regarding OTM submission eligibility and timeline as well as the full OTM category descriptions.

 

How to Submit an OTM

With the many concerns regarding the OTM database and its recent ‘quirks,’ we will continue to move forward utilizing Google Forms as an alternative to submit OTMs rather than the database. While a definitive answer cannot be given at this time regarding when/if the OTM database will resume functions, please know the effort is being put forth both at the regional and NACURH levels to research alternative solutions and adapt and improve as we go along.
