2013 University Awards For Excellence
The 2013 University Awards for Excellence nomination process opens February 4, 2013. The Awards for Excellence program, established by the State of North Carolina, recognizes the accomplishments and achievements of permanent, full-time NC State SPA or EPA employees who do not hold faculty rank.
This is an excellent opportunity to recognize employees who make a significant contribution to their department, division, the University community or the lives of others. Each college/unit coordinator will distribute information and details for submitting nominations. Please keep in mind that nominations may be submitted by anyone, even if the employee does not work in the same college/division/department. All nominations that fit the criteria are welcome!
Once the college/unit selects its winners, the SPA and EPA winners receive a $250.00 check and 8 hours of paid time off provided by the college unit/unit. Each college/unit submits their winners to the University Awards for Excellence selection committee. This selection committee determines the 5 winners (4 SPA and 1 EPA) at the University level. The five University level winners will receive an additional $250 check provided by Human Resources and 8 additional hours of paid time off provided by the college/unit, for a total of 16 hours of paid time off. The University-level award winners will be announced at the University Awards for Excellence Reception on June 12, 2013 at the Hunt Library.
Human Resources then submits all University-level winners to the NC Office of State Personnel for consideration in the Governor's Awards for Excellence program.
University Awards for Excellence

Human Resources then submits these 5 University-level winners to the NC Office of State Personnel for consideration in the Governor's Awards for Excellence program.
