The Spirit of UC Award

The Spirit of UC Award is an opportunity for you to honor some of the great work you witness every day among your colleagues.

All University College employees are eligible to nominate their colleagues, as well as win the award (except for the UC Deans).

Highlights of The Spirit of UC Award:

Winners will become the official keeper of The Spirit of UC Award trophy. Along with the Dean, the winner will present the award at the next college meeting.

The winner will have their picture taken during the ceremony, receive a token of recognition from the Dean, have a story written about them  on the webpage, and will have the opportunity to enjoy a celebratory lunch with the Dean.

The Award process will occur quarterly. The Spirit of UC Award winners will not be eligible to win the award again for one calendar year. Priority will be given to those who have never won the award. Neither anonymous nor self-nominations are allowed.
