2019 Administrative Improvement Awards
The UW-Madison campus community celebrated the winners of the university’s 2019 Administrative Improvement Awards at an April 16 ceremony at Union South. This year’s awards ceremony was part of a preview event for Showcase 2019. Combining these two events provided the campus community with an opportunity to participate in two springtime traditions and celebrations of excellence.
Vice Chancellor for Finance and Administration Laurent Heller and Associate Vice Chancellor for Finance David Murphy presented the awards to two individuals and three teams for their excellence in administrative roles supporting academics, research, student services, outreach or administration.
Vice Chancellor Heller said nominations for the improvement award came from all across the campus. He said all nominations stressed collaborative work.
“Even the individual nominees would not have achieved their success without the support and collaboration of colleagues,” he said. “This served to reinforce that a commitment to collaboration is one of our strongest campus values.”
