University teams working on a project that advances Arizona State University’s goal to create dramatic, positive change should apply for a 2017 President’s Award. The deadline to submit an application is Jan. 5, 2017.

The ASU President's Awards recognize and celebrate ASU faculty and staff that significantly contribute in the areas of:

• innovation
• social embeddedness
• sustainability

More than one team can win an award in each category. ASU President Michael Crow recognizes award recipients in April 2017 at the President’s Recognition Reception and award ceremony. Each team receives a team award, and all team members receive award certificates. 

Applicants can attend one of the Tempe campus Writers' Workshops on Nov. 3 or Dec. 7. Applicants learn about award criteria and effective application tips. Shelly Potts and Alison Cook-Davis of the University Office of Evaluation and Educational Effectiveness explain how to measure and report project results.

Find application forms and previous award recipient abstracts on the Employee Recognition Program webpage.

To register for a Writers’ Workshop or ask questions, applicants should email Linda Uhley or call 480-965-5089.
