Excellence in Management

About the Excellence in Management Award

The award honors exemplary managers and supervisors who have led their teams and team members to meaningful accomplishments this past year.


2022 Excellence in Management Award Theme: Building and Maintaining Community

This highlights leaders who demonstrate and encourage flexibility, adaptiveness, supportiveness, compassion, understanding, work-life balance, and well-being. 

Please nominate your managers/supervisors who exemplify the theme and provide detailed examples based on our Principles of Community. Below are some examples of the characteristics that exemplify our theme of "Building and Maintaining Community." You may choose to use one or more of the examples below or provide your own specific examples that encompass the theme: 

  • Maintain/develop a flexible work environment: manager/supervisor leads with flexibility and adaptivity while supporting their staff/team during the transition back to campus and focusing on each member's diverse needs to ensure a sense of community within the team/unit/organization/campus.

  • Active and intentional engagement around diversity, equity, inclusion, belonging, and justice: manager/supervisor is always respectful of cultural distinctions, welcomes differing viewpoints, looks to strengthen team dynamics, and nurtures an environment of inclusivity.

  • Work-life balance: manager/supervisor creates a positive environment and empowers their team for success. Encourages work-life balance of team members, supports well-being, is empathetic, and supportive of team members.
