Each year, Virginia Tech offers multiple award programs to recognize employees for their commitment to the university and community, their new ideas, and teamwork.

Nominations are now being accepted for the President’s Award for Excellence.

The President’s Award for Excellence was established in 1990 by President James McComas to recognize the outstanding contributions and consistently excellent performance of salaried classified and university staff employees, as well as certain administrative and professional faculty. The award is sponsored by the Office of the President and the Division of Human Resources.

  • Any employee may nominate another eligible employee for this award based on the established nomination guidelines. Note, self-nominations are not accepted.
  • Award winners will receive a letter of commendation from the president, a framed certificate and a $2,000 pre-tax award.

Submissions are also being accepted for the McComas Staff Leadership Award and Staff Career Achievement Award.

For these awards, the deadline will be here before you know it, so be sure to get your nomination in soon! The deadline for all nominations is Tuesday, Feb. 11 at 5 p.m. and must be submitted electronically.
