Faculty, Staff, and Student Employees

Dear Colleagues,

I am pleased to announce the call for nominations for the fifteenth annual Undergraduate Academic Affairs Recognitions Awards. This year’s recognition event will be held on Tuesday, June 11, from 3:00-5:00 p.m. in the Walker Ames room, Kane Hall.

Each year at our recognition event, we bring our attention to, congratulate, and thank each other for our efforts and accomplishments that make the undergraduate experience ever more dynamic and enriched. From student employees who are often on the front lines representing our work to those who are our unsung heroes, you each make a vital contribution to the collective mission of UAA and contribute to fulfilling our promise to students and their families.

I find these nominations particularly meaningful because they come from colleagues recognizing and thereby thanking one another for making an extra effort toward excellence. Please take a few moments and nominate your colleagues for their achievements—it can be to congratulate a person or group for a recent accomplishment or an individual for his or her sustained excellence.

The awards categories are:

2013 Award for Excellence
2013 Outstanding Achievement Award
2013 Outstanding Student Employee Award

In the past fifteen years, more than 100 UAA employees or teams have received recognition awards representing all units within Undergraduate Academic Affairs showing the breadth and depth of our commitment to students.

The awards criteria, nomination process, and list of past award recipients may be found here. Nominations may be submitted via this Catalyst dropbox.

The deadline for nominations is: 5 p.m. Friday, May 3, 2013. Please send questions to ugrad@uw.edu.

I look forward to seeing you on June 11!


Ed Taylor
Vice Provost and Dean
