2013 STAFF ASSEMBLY EXCELLENCE IN LEADERSHIP AWARD
UCI Staff Assembly is pleased to again announce the Staff Assembly Excellence in Leadership Award Program. This program recognizes select staff supervisors who, through outstanding leadership, enhance staff morale, build an enriching work environment, and serve as a mentor or otherwise support the career development of their staff, all to the benefit of our UCI community.
Guidelines for eligibility as well as nomination and award procedures are provided below.
- Only those supervisors with staff appointments are eligible; academics or students holding staff titles are not eligible.
- Supervisors may be nominated every year, but may only receive an award every three years (unless supervisor moves to a different job/department).
- Any person may nominate an individual supervisor, however if more than one person nominates an individual, they will be asked to work with other nominators to combine their nominations into one document with one contact name.
- Nomination packets are due by April 5, 2013.
- Nomination packets must include a completed nomination form, a strong nomination statement, and a copy of the current organizational chart of the supervisor's department (names, titles and percent FTE of direct reports to the supervisor must be listed).
- At least 50 percent of the supervisor's direct reports must indicate their agreement with the nomination.
- Incomplete nomination packets will not be considered.
