Reminder – Nominations are Open for the 2019 UA Award for Excellence

UA Employee Recognition Committee
January 10, 2019

It is time to recognize the outstanding individuals and teams who make a difference on campus! Nominations are open for the 2019 UA Awards for Excellence. The UA Awards for Excellence recognize achievements of Classified Staff and Appointed Professionals in 4 categories:

University of Arizona Award for Excellence (Individual) is presented to approximately 9 members of the Classified Staff and the Appointed Professionals, regardless of their length of service, classification or pay grade. These awards are designed to recognize outstanding achievements that go above and beyond normal duties.

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

Deadline for nominations is 5:00 p.m. Tuesday, January 22, 2019.

The Recognition Ceremony will be held on Monday, April 8, 2019 at 3:00 p.m. in the Student Union Grand Ballroom. All members of campus are welcome to attend.
