Call for nominations: Administrative and Professional Faculty Award

From: Human Resources

Each year, Virginia Tech offers multiple award programs to recognize employees for their commitment to the university and community, new ideas, and teamwork. Thanks to the efforts of more than 10,000 employees, the university continues to grow, innovate, and remain a great place to learn and work.

Nominations are being accepted for the Administrative and Professional (A/P) Faculty Award.

The A/P faculty award was established in 2022 to recognize the extraordinary contributions, accomplishments, and consistent excellence in the performance of a job, single incident, or heroic act of A/P faculty at the university.

  • Full-time A/P faculty are eligible except academic department heads, deans, assistant and associate deans, vice presidents, assistant and associate vice presidents, and assistant and associate provosts. 
  • Employees may nominate other eligible employees based on the established nomination guidelines. Self-nominations are not accepted.
  • Award winners will receive a $2,000 pre-tax award.

Submissions are also being accepted for the McComas Staff Leadership Award, President’s Award for Excellence, and Staff Career Achievement Award.

New this year, nominators will use a new platform to learn about the award and submit nominations. Visit, select the appropriate award, and create a nomination. Form fields are set up to auto-populate information and help speed up the process and improve accuracy. In addition, the system will automatically send nominations through a review and approval process. Nominators can start a nomination, save, and go back later to complete. Nominators can also check the status of one of their submitted nominations to see if it is pending review or has been approved.

Submit your nomination by Thursday, Feb. 15.
