Nominations are now being accepted for the University of Nebraska Technology Excellence Award, open to all Information Technology Services staff. This award is an opportunity to recognize an ITS staff member for their hard work and achievements. The award was offered in Kearney from 2010-2017 and was open for all Information Technology Services employees at UNK, UNL and UNO beginning in 2018.
Nominations must be submitted by September 25 to Andrea Childress, ITS Assistant Vice President and UNK CIO, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
First established in 2010 at UNK, the Technology Excellence Award recognizes the exemplary performance of ITS staff members who consistently provide a level of service significantly above and beyond specific responsibilities. Recognition for the award will be based on an individual’s commitment in terms of job performance; a commitment to service for students, faculty and/or staff; and contributions to the professions.
To be eligible, employees must report directly to Information Technology Services and must have completed at least one year of service prior to the award application deadline.
Nominations for the Technology Excellence Award may be made by faculty, staff or co-workers. A letter addressing the nominee’s exemplary contributions, accomplishments and job performance, and/or extraordinary service to faculty, staff and students is to be submitted to a campus CIO by September 25. All letters will be treated as confidential.
Nominations will be reviewed by a committee with representatives from the UNK, UNL and UNO Faculty Senate IT committees. The committee may request additional information about the nominees. The top three nominees will be submitted to the campus CIO’s by October 1.
The award will be announced in October. Recipients of the Technology Excellence Award will receive a framed certificate of recognition and a monetary award.
