2009 Recognition Awards & Staff Scholarships

On behalf of the boards of the UCLA Staff Assembly and the Administrative Management Group (AMG), we're delighted to announce this year’s opportunities to recognize special achievements by UCLA employees, including the Chancellor’s new Excellence in Service Awards. The deadline has been extended to May 8, 2009.

The UCLA Staff Assembly is accepting nominations and applications for the following awards:

  • Faculty/Staff Partnership Award
    In recognition of the value of collaboration and collegiality, staff members are encouraged to nominate faculty members who actively develop and encourage faculty/staff partnerships.
  • Staff Scholarships
    Staff members may apply for scholarships in support of their career enhancement and professional growth. Each award covers the cost of education and training up to $500.
  • Chancellor’s Excellence in Service Awards
    This year, the program has been modified to honor four staff members for their outstanding service in one of the following categories: Sustainability, Diversity, Civic Engagement, and True Bruin. The awards are aligned with Chancellor Block’s goals for the University and celebrate how the pursuit of excellence benefits the entire UCLA community. Each honoree will receive a $1,000 prize, sponsored by the Chancellor’s Office.

The Administrative Management Group (AMG), in partnership with Campus Human Resources, will present an additional opportunity for recognition:

  • The Excellence in Leadership (EXCEL) Award
    In recognition of excellence in management and leadership, this award will be presented to a staff member who has had a significant and lasting impact on the people that he/she leads, while also making broad contributions to the campus. Campus Human Resources is sponsoring this award in memory of Jeanne Williams, who retired in 1987 following an exemplary career as a UCLA administrator and founding Assistant Dean of the School of Medicine.

Program criteria and application/nomination forms for the recognition opportunities sponsored by the UCLA Staff Assembly are available on the UCLA Staff Assembly website. 

Nomination forms and award criteria for the EXCEL Award presented by AMG are available on the AMG website or in Related Information.

The award nomination deadline is May 8, 2009. Recipients of the scholarships and awards noted above will be honored on June 17, 2009, at a special campus-wide ceremony jointly sponsored by the UCLA Staff Assembly and AMG. Please join us in recognizing the special contributions of UCLA employees.
