2007 University Awards for Faculty, Staff, Students, and Alumni
I am pleased to announce the launch of the 2007 University Awards process. I encourage you to acknowledge the work of AU faculty, staff, students, and alumni whose contributions to AU have been exceptional by nominating them for a university award.
We periodically review the awards process and make adjustments to reflect the times:
Cash prizes: Beginning in 2006, a cash prize was added to each award. Award amounts are:
- $250 to $1,000 for student awards;
- $750 for staff awards (not to exceed $5,000 for a group
- $2,000 to $5,000 for faculty awards.
Expanded eligibility for staff awards: Beginning this year, groups or teams will be considered for all five staff awards. Previously, groups were only eligible for the Service to the AU Community award.
Increased funding for staff awards: With the inclusion of groups for all staff awards, the cash prize was increased from $2,000 to $5,000; in addition, the cash prize for staff awards increased to $750.
These changes are just some examples of our continued commitment to rewarding and recognizing examples of excellence at AU. Awards will be presented on the following dates:
