Information Systems has announced the establishment of the Steven Wade Neiterman Award, to be presented annually to an individual engaged in information technology work in any department at the Institute.
The award is sponsored by the late Neiterman's parents, Jan and Ed Neiterman, to recognize those "who share the qualities that Steven Wade embodied: his abilities in collaborative problem-solving, in coaching colleagues and in team building," according to the award's web site. Neiterman "loved sharing his knowledge about his wide array of interests including MIT's information technology infrastructure ... his commitment to MIT suffused all that he did." Neiterman, a senior analyst programmer in Information Systems, died sudddenly in November 1998.
Any member of the MIT Community (except members of the Information Technology Leadership Team and the Nomination Review Committee) may nominate an information technology colleague. Nominations may be completed online at the web site given above or submitted on paper sent to the Office of the Vice President for Information Systems, Room 10-219.
Nominations must be received by Dec. 21. The recipient of the Neiterman award will be announced late in January. Inquiries may be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
