Since 1987, CAUBO has celebrated the administrative achievements of our members through the Quality & Productivity (Q&P) Awards Program. The simple concept of sharing good ideas has grown into an established best practices program that celebrates the successes of our members and provides a venue for spreading the word.
CAUBO is now accepting submissions for the 28th annual Quality and Productivity (Q&P) Awards. This is a great opportunity for you to share your institution’s innovative ideas and success stories with your colleagues across Canada!
The Awards are split into two main categories: Open and Themed. As universities continue to cope with financial challenges across the country, once again this year the theme will be “Achieving and Demonstrating Operational Effectiveness within Higher Education Administration.” The Open category considers submissions that fall under any other topic.
Three national prizes are awarded in each category, and each of these prizes carry a cash award - $2500 for first prize, $1500 for second prize, and $1000 for third prize. There are opportunities for Honourable Mentions in both categories, but no cash prize is attached to these awards.
The application form is available for download here.
The submission deadline for the 2015 Q&P Awards is January 16, 2015. Please note that this is significantly earlier than in previous years. We can’t wait to see what’s happening at your institutions this year!
