From crafting bowls to benefit the hungry to proving water existed on Mars, the 2016 inaugural group of President’s Award winners embodied excellence. While the bar has been set high, we’re excited to begin the nomination process for the 2017 awards program and to announce the addition of a fourth award category.
The Support Award recognizes contributions by staff employees in support of UT’s three-part mission to educate, discover and connect. Examples of nominees include someone who conducted research or provided administrative support that contributed to a discovery; who works with individual students or student organizations; or someone who coordinates outreach and service events or activities. The program’s four award categories include: support, educate, discover and connect. Descriptions for each category are available on the president’s website.
The President’s Awards program is a system-wide platform for honoring our best from across the state. Honorees are selected each year from a system-wide pool of candidates nominated by campus and institute leaders. Commemorative and monetary awards are presented during an annual ceremony.
Nominations are due Jan. 4, and winners will be announced during the February 2017 State of UT event. Processes for identifying nominees vary at each campus and institute.
