Faculty/Staff Partnership Award

A system-wide task force comprised of faculty and staff from all the campuses and locations in the UC system has issued the following statement on partnership:

“The greatness of the University of California follows from the excellence of its people – its faculty, staff, and students; however, a mere collection of outstanding individuals will not advance the University. Our ability to excel in our missions depends on collaborations and collegial environments. A collegial atmosphere can only come about through strong partnerships based on mutual trust and respect. Therefore, in support of the University’s missions, the faculty and staff of the University of California affirm their responsibility and commitment to creating and fostering a cooperative and professional working environment.”

In recognition of the value of collaboration and collegiality, UCLA’s Staff Assembly would like to recognize those faculty members who actively develop and encourage faculty/staff partnerships.

All UCLA Faculty members who do not hold staff appointments are eligible for the award.

To view the criteria and/or submit a nomination please go to http://ucla.in/2nQwKPH.

Applications must be received no later than Wednesday, May 3, 2017.

If you have any questions regarding the Faculty/Staff Partnership Award, please contact Kathleen Ly at kly@volunteer.ucla.edu.
