President’s Award for Excellence

Nominations may be submitted between July 1, 2015 and February 1, 2016.

Initiated in 1990 by President James McComas, the President’s Award for Excellence was established to recognize the outstanding contributions and consistently excellent performance of salaried classified and university staff employees, as well as certain administrative and professional faculty personnel.  

The committee also recommends to the president any nominees who should be forwarded to the Governor’s office for consideration for a Governor’s Award.

Eligibility

All Virginia Tech salaried staff at any pay band level, as well as some administrative or professional faculty, are eligible for consideration. Specific exclusions for the award are instructional faculty, research faculty, academic department heads, deans, assistant and associate deans, vice presidents, assistant and associate vice presidents, assistant and associate provosts, extension agents, and wage employees.  

Nominations may be made by any employee; however, self-nominations are not acceptable. Previous award recipients are not eligible until five years after receiving the award. 

Nominations

Nominations may be submitted between July 1, 2015 and February 1, 2016. The lengthy nomination period provides nominators with the opportunity to submit nominations after performance evaluations are completed each fall, when employee accomplishments are still top of mind. View the nomination guidelines and procedures.

Selection

Nominees are reviewed by a committee of staff members and administrative and professional faculty members appointed by the president, who makes the final decision.

Award

Each recipient will receive a letter of commendation from the President, a framed certificate, and a $2,000 award.
