ASU faculty, staff encouraged to apply for 2015 President's Awards

2014 President's Medal for Social Embeddedness

University teams working on projects that advance ASU’s goals and aspirations to create dramatic, positive change should submit their projects to be considered for one of the 2015 President’s Awards.

The annual ASU President’s Awards, an integral part of the university’s Employee Recognition Program, recognize and celebrate faculty and staff who have made significant contributions to the university in the areas of innovation, social embeddedness or sustainability. More than one team can win an award in each category.

The deadline to submit an application is Jan. 8, 2015. Writers Workshops, led by Sarah Polasky of the University Office of Evaluation and Educational Effectiveness, will be held Nov. 5 and Dec. 10. Polasky will provide more information on the awards criteria and give helpful tips on how to write a compelling application that effectively reports a project’s results.

To register for a workshop, contact Linda Uhley at

ASU President Michael Crow will recognize award recipients at the President’s Recognition Reception and award ceremony in April 2015. Each team will receive a team award and all team members will receive award certificates.
