Congratulations to our 2021 Awards for Excellence Winners!

NC State’s Awards for Excellence are the most prestigious honor bestowed upon non-faculty employees. This program recognizes employee contributions that are above and beyond an employee’s normal job responsibilities. This past year has been extraordinary, and we are proud of our outstanding Finance and Administration employees who have met numerous challenges due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Thank you for your perseverance, dedication, ingenuity and hard work!

This year, the Finance and Administration Awards for Excellence Committee received 48 nominations, across seven Finance and Administration divisions: Budget & Resource Management, Campus Enterprises, Environmental Health and Public Safety, Facilities, Finance, University Human Resources and Real Estate and Development.
