AUA Seeks Nominations for Annual Awards

As the evaluation cycle for Administrative/Professional (AP) faculty comes to an end later this semester, a good way to recognize and celebrate the success stories of a colleague for the past academic year is to nominate him/her for one of the Association of University Administrators' two annual recognition opportunities: the J. Worth Pickering Administrator of the Year Award and the Monarch Professional Award.

Recipients of each award will receive a $500 recognition bonus, an individual plaque, an engraved nameplate on the University Awards Wall in Webb Center, and will be recognized at the AUA Awards Breakfast and the University Faculty Awards Dinner at the end of the spring semester. Questions concerning the awards may be directed to Trey Mayo, AUA president, at rmayo@odu.edu.

Nomination criteria for the two awards are listed below:
