What are the Q&P Awards?
Since 1987, CAUBO has celebrated the administrative achievements of its members with 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 human, financial, and physical resources on Canadian campuses. Five national prizes are awarded each year to honour excellence in risk management, administrative efficiency, space management, environmental sustainability, and innovation.

If you think a project that’s now underway or complete at your university should be added to the winners’ list, complete the application form online and tell us why you should win a 2022 Q&P Award!

We all know someone who consistently goes above and beyond, through hard work, volunteerism, mentorship, or all of the above. These people make higher education administration a better sector to work in. They make our jobs easier. They bring out the best in others. Wouldn’t it be great if they were recognized for it?

You can make that happen by nominating them for a 2022 CAUBO Recognition Award!

Check out the criteria for the member-nominated recognition awards as well as some past recipients:

  • The Emerging Leader Award honours future leaders in the higher education field.
  • The Ken Clements Distinguished Administrator Award recognizes an administrator who has made an extraordinary contribution to the advancement of higher education administration and has demonstrated outstanding leadership.
  • The Distinguished Service Award is granted to persons who have made a significant contribution to CAUBO and the management of higher education over a long period of time, upon the conclusion of their career in university administration.
  • Honorary Membership is a meaningful recognition bestowed sparingly and only to those individuals among those satisfying the criteria for a Distinguished Service Award who are deemed to have made an extraordinary contribution to CAUBO and the management of higher education.
