Jodi Gentry, Vice President for Human Resources

I am pleased to announce a call for nominations for the University of Florida’s Superior Accomplishment Awards program. The purpose of the program, now in its 29th year, is to recognize Academic Personnel; Technical Executive Administrative Managerial and Support (TEAMS) employees; and University Support Personnel System (USPS) employees who have contributed outstanding service in their fields during the academic year of August 1, 2016, to July 31, 2017.

Please don’t miss this chance to recognize those among us who make the extra effort to contribute. This year’s nomination period runs from September 11, 2017, through October 31, 2017.

Division-level winners of the Superior Accomplishment Awards, as well as the Diversity & Inclusion in the Workplace winner and the Community Service winner from each division, receive $200 along with a certificate of appreciation and university memento. Each division winner then is eligible to be selected for one of six university-level awards of $2,000 each or one of eight $1,000 awards sponsored by The Gabor Agency (four awards) and The Standard (four awards). Division-level winners of the Diversity & Inclusion and Community Service awards will be eligible for one university-level award of $2,000 in each category.

Each of the eight university-level winners and his or her guest also will be invited to attend a University of Florida football game in the President’s Box next season.

For additional information about the Superior Accomplishment Awards program, divisional committee chairs, nomination criteria, and nomination forms, please visit the awards’ website at The divisional award committees are responsible for the nomination processes and for winner selections in their divisions. Self-nominations are not accepted.

UF’s Superior Accomplishment Awards program was developed to recognize deserving university employees and is coordinated by the Office of Human Resources. The success of this program depends on all of our participation as we seek to express appreciation for exceptional employees and their superior accomplishments. Thank you for your support of this program.
