Consider nominating exceptional UNC School of Medicine employees for employee recognition awards both at the School of Medicine and at the University level:

Dean’s Performance Awards

The Dean’s Office announces an annual Dean’s Performance Award, created to honor exceptional School of Medicine staff not eligible for UNC Health Care Cash Awards.

Nominees will have demonstrated exceptional performance by an individual or group effort that make significant contributions to our triparte mission and help us reach our vision to be the top public School of Medicine; one $1,000 award will be given for each of the 6 strategic imperatives outlined in the SOM Strategic Plan.

Peers or supervisors may recommend exceptional coworkers for the awards through their ACA, Basic Science/Center Business Managers or Administration Department Heads for submission.  Each department, center or administration office will then submit up to 6 nominations (1 for each of 6 strategic areas: Research, Education, Faculty, Community Service, Diversity, Administrative Infrastructure) to the Dean’s Office for consideration.

New nominations will be accepted September 9 – October 2, 2020. Nominations submitted in spring 2020 will also be considered. Award recipients will be announced in November and cash awards will be reflected in the December paychecks.
