Models of Inclusive Excellence Supervisory Recognition Program

The Models of Inclusive Excellence Supervisory Recognition program was developed based on recommendations from the Chancellor's Advisory Committee on Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion. The purpose of the program is to align supervisory actions, accomplishments, and behaviors with UNCG's values of inclusiveness, collaboration, sustainability, responsibility, and transparency. The program seeks to recognize supervisors for tangible accomplishments in providing a positive work climate, ensuring equity and inclusion, and creating a culture of collaboration that supports career growth and professional development.

This program is a pilot program sponsored by the Chancellor's Advisory Committee for Equity, Diversity and Inclusion and administered by Human Resource Services. As such, it seeks to recognize staff and faculty supervisors for their contributions to the University mission and goals.

Award

There will be two Models of Inclusive Excellence awards (one faculty, one staff) given each year. Each nomination will be reviewed by the Models of Inclusive Excellence Selection Committee, which will identify the finalists for the award. The Committee will consist of members of the sub-committee of the Chancellor's Advisory Committee on Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion and representatives from each division. The Chancellor will present the Models of Inclusive Excellence Awards which will consist of a monetary award of $1000 given at a university wide awards ceremony. A photograph of the winners will be placed on a wall in Mossman Building.

Deadline for nominations is March 15th.
