(Dec. 9, 2011) -- Effective this academic year, UTSA will combine the separate staff and faculty honors ceremonies into one event, the University Excellence Awards, and will not have a separate Faculty Honors Convocation. The 2012 University Excellence Awards Ceremony will be 2 p.m., Tuesday, April 10, 2012, in the University Center Ballroom (1.104) on the Main Campus.
A new award, the President's Distinguished Diversity Award, has been added to the list of honors. With the implementation of the combined ceremonies, the timeline for acceptance of nominations has been changed. The nomination period will be from Dec. 12, 2011, through Feb. 3, 2012, for the following awards:
At the event, the recipients of the awards listed above will be recognized, as well as the recipients of the President's Distinguished Achievement Awards for faculty members. Additionally, UTSA employees who have reached milestones in their service with the university and UT System and retirees from the 2010 calendar year will be honored.
"Our most valuable asset at UTSA is our people, and our university is on its way to becoming a premier research university thanks to the endless hours of dedication from our employees," said UTSA President Ricardo Romo. "It is important that we take the time to recognize and honor those who go beyond the call of duty. This is why I encourage you to take the time to nominate your colleagues for the 2012 University Excellence Awards. I thank you in advance for taking the time to nominate your colleagues who help make UTSA a better place for all."
NOTE: A UTSA employee may be nominated for only one individual award in a given year. However, a UTSA employee may be nominated for an individual award and be part of a team award nomination in a given year. Supervisors should provide printed copies to employees who may not have access to a UTSA personal computer.
