The University is very pleased to call for nominations for three significant annual employee awards: President’s Leadership Award; Gabor Exemplary Employee Award; and iTHINK Financial Customer Service Award. Award winners will be honored at the Annual Employee Service Awards Ceremony on Tuesday, April 19, 2022.
The President’s Leadership Award Program is intended to recognize individual employees of Florida Atlantic University who have rendered services of an extraordinary nature to the University and/or the greater community.
Persons recognized should have played leadership roles in efforts that delivered substantial benefits to the University as a whole, to a community served by the University, or to another external population. Leadership can be demonstrated in many ways. In all cases, however, leaders inspire and mobilize others to work cooperatively and effectively toward the betterment of the University or community. Leaders are innovative and resourceful. They have a vision of how the institution, its relationship to the community, or the community itself could be made better. Leaders are willing to work hard to turn that vision into reality and they are able to earn the support of others for their projects. Leaders go beyond their job descriptions and exceed the typical expectations of the assignment. Leaders make a difference.
Two President’s Leadership Awards will be presented. Nominations will be accepted in the following categories: SP employee; AMP employee; Faculty or Librarian employee; and Academic Administrator.
Nominees may have shown leadership either in a crisis situation or in the normal work environment. Recognition may be for a single outstanding demonstration of leadership or for ongoing leadership within the University or the community at large.
Award winners will receive specially designed, engraved trophies and $1,500 (before taxes) along with letters of congratulation from the President.
The Gabor Employee Award recognizes two employees each year for their exemplary service to Florida Atlantic University in the performance of their specific jobs.
AMP and SP employees are eligible for award consideration. Nominations will require that the employees provided exemplary service in at least one of the following ways:
Award winners will receive specially designed, engraved trophies and $1200 (before taxes) along with letters of congratulation from the President.
The iTHINK Financial Customer Service Award emphasizes and highlights an FAU employee’s commitment to providing top-quality customer service in all situations to all constituencies, including external customers (i.e., the public, members of the community, alumni, parents, donors, other colleges, and universities, and both profit and not-for-profit organizations) and internal customers (i.e., students and the University’s own faculty and staff). The award recognizes employees who have made exceptional contributions, exceeding normal expectations, to further the University’s mission by delivering service of superior quality.
AMP and SP employees are eligible for award consideration. Examples of service that exceeds expectations may include going above and beyond the call of duty in providing assistance to customers, being extremely conscientious in making sure that customers get the guidance they need to fulfill their needs, and maintaining a steady focus on the timely and courteous delivery of services even under stressful circumstances.
Award winners will receive specially designed, engraved trophies and $1200 (before taxes) along with letters of congratulation from the President. There will be 2 winners selected.
A Selection Committee made up of Faculty, AMP, and SP representatives will screen nominations for all three awards, which will be presented at the Employee Service Awards ceremony on Tuesday, April 19, 2022
The nomination deadline is 5:00 p.m. on Wednesday, February 23, 2022

The University is providing an opportunity for you to nominate someone you know that is doing some amazing things by going “above and beyond” their job description every day. We wanted to help provide you with some tips to assist you in writing your nomination to help the committee understand the significance of their contribution.
The nomination form is stronger if it provides significant information on how the person impacts the University. For example, if you have support letters from supervisors, co-workers, and subordinates; as well as letters from individuals from areas outside the department, or the university, it makes the nomination form stronger.
In your nomination explanation, please include data or examples to help explain their contribution.
We hope these tips help provide you with the information that is needed when filling out the nomination form.
