President's Awards for Service Excellence

You Matter Here.workplace sharing

VIU's People Plan pledges to develop and nurture an institutional culture of recognition. In keeping with the Plan's goal of including all employees in this recognition culture, an awards program has been developed to honour the exceptional work of our non-instructional colleagues. 

Celebrating our collective and individual achievements is important, and just as important is ensuring all employee groups are included. These awards are designed specifically for non-instructional employees who demonstrate excellence in a variety of areas that make a positive and lasting contribution to VIU and our culture. 

We hope you'll take this opportunity to shine a light on a few exceptional examples. View the detailed award criteria and fill out a nomination form to recommend a colleague for one of these awards. 

The nomination period for the President's Awards for Service Excellence will open in spring 2024.

The campus community gathered in November for the President's and Provost's award ceremony. Awards were presented to recipients from all the nominated award categories at this celebration.
