UW-Madison seeking 2015 Administrative Improvement Award nominees

February 10, 2015

Nominees are being sought for a campus award that recognizes exceptional performance in administrative roles that support academics, research, student services, outreach and administration.

The 2015 Administrative Improvement Award will recognize outstanding work in process redesign/development or customer service/delivery that resulted in improved efficiency, increased revenue channels, cost savings and/or improved service delivery.

In a message to the campus community, Chancellor Rebecca Blank, Provost Sarah Mangelsdorf and Vice Chancellor for Finance and Administration Darrell Bazzell emphasized the importance of administrative work to the success of UW–Madison.

“This awards program acknowledges that our students’ success is supported by the operations and administration of the university,” they said. “Such efforts are critical to UW–Madison’s mission and are very much appreciated.”

The Administrative Improvement Award places special emphasis on process improvement and collaborative work. Nominees can be an individual or a team.

The nomination form and guidelines are available online. The nomination deadline is March 18, 2015. The awards will be presented at a campus ceremony in early June.

Submissions for individuals may reference multiple examples that demonstrate a sustained focus on administrative improvement. Anyone on campus may submit a nomination(s). However, self-nominations – either from an individual or a member of a team – will not be accepted.
