2020 CAUBO Recognition Award – Don’t forget to nominate an outstanding colleague!

The submission deadline for the CAUBO 2020 Recognition Awards is January 31, 2020.


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 2020 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.

This year’s awards will be presented at a ceremony on the Tuesday morning of the CAUBO 2020 Annual Conference in Toronto.
