New awards program to recognize administrative work

May 14, 2013 By Greg Bump

Do you know someone who has streamlined a process, saved a department time or money, or contributed in an outstanding way to a process or service improvement?

They just may be candidates for a new awards program that focuses on administrative achievement at the University of Wisconsin–Madison.

Vice Chancellor for Finance and Administration Darrell Bazzell says it is important to acknowledge the essential role of administrative functions in the success of UW–Madison’s mission.

“The award program will celebrate this important, sometimes unnoticed work,” Bazzell said. “We intend the award as an acknowledgment of the positive impact these employees have every day on students, on their colleagues, and on the accomplishments that distinguish this institution.”

The Administrative Achievement Award will recognize excellence in an administrative role supporting student services, research, academics or administration. Any current employee who serves in an administrative role is eligible, including classified and academic staff, student employees and faculty. Any member of the campus community can submit a nomination. Individual and team efforts are eligible for the award.

The nominations should address one or more of the following criteria: excellence in performance, personal interaction, initiative and creativity, and outstanding achievement. To find more information about the awards, or submit a nomination, go to the Administrative Achievement Award page.

The nomination deadline is May 31, 2013. The recipients will be recognized at a ceremony this summer.

Questions about the awards should be directed to Scott Hildebrand, Office of the Vice Chancellor for Finance and Administration, at
