These annual awards are to encourage, recognise and reward professional staff for innovation, service improvement and collegiality.

  • Initiatives resulting in considerable cost reductions and efficiencies in work practices or processes;
  • Benefits in the innovative application of Information Technology to administration, teaching and/or research;

Building and contributing to a culture of cross unit cooperation and collegiality – i.e. staff who demonstrate good collaboration and communication between different sections of the College and ANU.

Eligibility:

All full-time, part-time or casual professional CBE staff members are eligible for nomination for a staff award. Multiple awards may be granted in a given year. Successful recipients of an award will be eligible for nomination in following years.

Nominations:

Nomination submissions should be no more than 500 words which must directly address one of the criteria.

Process of Selection:

The award process is run annually and the closing date for nominations is Friday, 27 October 2017.

Nominations will be considered by a selection panel chaired by the General Manager, comprising of:

  • A Director of a CBE Research School;
  • A CBE Associate Dean; and

The Dean of the College will make decisions about the winners of the awards based on recommendations from the panel.
