Nominate your colleagues for Presidential Excellence awards

Established in 1985, the Presidential Excellence in Service Awards serve to recognize exemplary performance by individuals who consistently excel in their positions and demonstrate a strong commitment to the mission and core values of UT Health San Antonio.

The prestigious recognition provides the university the opportunity to recognize faculty and staff contributions and service. The honors include public accolades, a special dinner event with the presentation of an award plaque to be held in March 2018, and a monetary award. The signature honors include awards for:

  • Clinical Excellence
  • Distinguished Junior Research Scholar
  • Distinguished Senior Research Scholar
  • Employee Excellence in Service (includes new award for team recognition)
  • Teaching Excellence

The nomination process for the 2018 Presidential Excellence Awards is now open with a submission deadline of 5 p.m., Friday, Nov. 17.

Listening to and acting upon your feedback in both the Faculty and Employee Engagement Surveys conducted in 2016, we are making a few meaningful changes to the Presidential Excellence awards program. The criteria is broadened to demonstrate more clearly alignment to our organization’s core values and mission. In addition, we are adding the opportunity to not only recognize individual achievement, but to also recognize a team for their contributions.
