This year the Awards of Excellence have been enhanced and simplified to make it easier to recognize the great work done by support staff.
Based on feedback from the community we have made the nomination process simpler. There is a single award category called “The Award of Excellence”. This single award category is flexible so it can celebrate any contribution that has been made, as long as it supports one of the five pillars of the University’s strategic plan. These strategic pillars are broad, so they provide you with many different ways to celebrate outstanding work.
No contribution is too small, if your colleague has made a difference then tell us about it! It could enhance your nomination, if you recognize individuals for contributions that cover multiple pillars, but it is not necessary.
There is also a President’s Award. Everyone who is nominated for an Award of Excellence will automatically be considered for this award. Under this new approach all nominations for the Award of Excellence will be reviewed by the senior administrative team. After this review if the President feels a single nomination stands above all others then he will recognize it with the President’s Award of Excellence.
If you wish to nominate someone then click on this link to go to our nomination page for further information.
Nominations will close on April 5.
The recipients of the awards will be announced mid May.
Award recipients will be formally recognized at an awards event on June 27.

All applications will be reviewed by nomination committee, the review committee has the difficult task of selecting recipients of the Award. Recipients will be selected based on demonstrated impact on goals and supporting actions of the strategic plan. Please be as detailed and specific as you can in your application, ensure you provide relevant metrics and outcomes.
