Honour and recognize a colleague with a CAUBO Recognition Award!

Nominations are now open for the 2024 CAUBO Volunteer Recognition Awards

Many of us work with incredible, dedicated colleagues who go that extra mile: perhaps they mentor people who are new to the sector or the workplace; take on volunteer roles with CAUBO or other organizations, where they contribute their knowledge and expertise to improve higher education administration; or demonstrate extraordinary leadership to their team and colleagues. The Recognition Awards are a way for us to honour these members—the ones who have made significant contributions to CAUBO, to our sector as a whole, or both.

Being recognized by colleagues and peers is incredibly meaningful for the recipients of these awards. How do we know? Because they told us. So if you know someone deserving of recognition, please take the time to nominate them. Here are the award categories in which we are seeking nominations:

  • The Emerging Leader Award honours up-and-coming 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 demonstrated outstanding leadership.
  • The Distinguished Service Award is awarded to members who have made a significant contribution to CAUBO and higher education management over a long period of time. It’s given at the conclusion of the member’s career in university administration.
  • The 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 higher education management.

The process to nominate someone for an award is simple: just fill out and submit the online form. You may also include letters of support from other colleagues to strengthen your nomination, if you like.
The awards will be presented at a ceremony during the CAUBO 2024 Annual Conference where we will present a video on each of the winners, containing interviews with colleagues and the winners themselves.

The deadline for Recognition Award nominations is December 15, 2023. We look forward to hearing about your amazing colleagues and peers!
