Quality and Productivity Awards Program

Since 1987, CAUBO has celebrated the administrative achievements of its members through the Quality and Productivity (Q & P) Awards. These are the Oscars of best practices in higher education administration.

The concept is simple: reward and share effective and innovative practices that enable excellence in the management of risk, and human, financial, IT and physical resources on our Canadian campuses.

Given the circumstances at play this year, we want to know: What are some ways that your institution has increased its resilience and ensured greater efficiency, both before and during the pandemic? For example, tell us about innovations that may have been implemented in a crisis environment, administrative processes that have been switched up or rethought, and projects or initiatives that have led to cost containments or reductions.

The annual submission period for the Q&P Awards runs until January 15, 2021, and winners will be announced during the virtual CAUBO Annual Conference in June.

If there’s a way to do it better….tell us.
