Subject: Nominations for 2020 Awards for Excellence Due Feb. 3

Date: January 16, 2020

It is time to recognize the outstanding individuals and teams who make a difference on campus! Nominations are open for the 2020 University of Arizona Awards for Excellence. The UA Awards for Excellence recognize achievements of Classified Staff and Appointed Professionals (soon to be University Staff) in 4 categories:

  • University of Arizona Award for Excellence (Individual) is given to approximately 9 members of Classified Staff and Appointed Professionals, regardless of length of service, classification or pay grade.
  • The Billy Joe Varney Award for Excellence is presented to one Classified Staff or Appointed Professional employee, with at least 15 cumulative years of employment at the University, who merits special recognition for a career of dedicated service to the University, its employees, and the community. 
  • The University of Arizona Team Award for Excellence is presented to a team primarily comprised of Classified Staff and Appointed Professionals and tasked with a specific project or function. The award will be presented in recognition of the team's outstanding contribution to its unit, department, or University as a whole.
  • The Department Award for Excellence is presented to a single department in recognition of its outstanding departmental excellence in the management of its people and resources.

All of these honors, with the exception of the Department Award for Excellence, carry with them a University-funded monetary award and, therefore, must be based on achievements in activities beyond normal duties.

Please nominate employees in your area who are making outstanding contributions to the University. Complete information and instructions can be found at http://recognition.arizona.edu/.

Deadline for nominations is 5:00 p.m. Monday, February 3.

And save the date for the the Recognition Ceremony on Monday, April 27, at 3:00 p.m. in the Student Union Grand Ballroom. All members of campus are welcome to attend and celebrate the diversity and excellence of our employees. President Robert C. Robbins is scheduled to present the awards at the ceremony, with women's basketball coach Adia Barnes scheduled as emcee.
