1. Programme Overview

‌‌‌‌‌PROGRAMME OVERVIEW 2017

 

The University Staff Recognition Awards Programme was inaugurated in 2010 and is now in its seventh year.  The Awards Programme provides a formal process for acknowledging outstanding achievements by UCC staff and for recognising and celebrating these achievements.  The programme complements informal recognition and appreciation of colleagues’ contribution to the University and the wider community on a day to day basis.  The Awards Programme offers a number of award categories and the categories offered may vary from one year to the next.  Responsibility for implementing the Awards Programme lies with the Academic Council Staff Development Committee (SDC)with support from the Department of Human Resources.

A Selection Committee is established to evaluate nominations based on indicative criteria for each award category.  The Selection Committee determines the nominees to be recognised under the Awards Programme in any given year.  Those selected to receive a University Staff Recognition Award in 2017 will be honoured at a formal ceremony, hosted by the President, which will take place on 5th October.
