Congratulations to our 2022 Awards for Excellence Winners!

NC State’s Awards for Excellence are the most prestigious honor bestowed upon non-faculty employees, recognizing 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 exceeded expectations during a challenging year. Thank you for your perseverance, dedication, ingenuity and hard work!

The Finance and Administration Awards for Excellence ceremony occurred May 3, 2022 with both an in-person event at Talley Student Union and live streaming of the ceremony.  This year, the Finance and Administration Awards for Excellence Committee received 37 nominations across five Finance and Administration divisions: Campus Enterprises, Environmental Health and Public Safety, Facilities, Finance, and University Human Resources.

Six nominees were recognized as Finance and Administration Award for Excellence winners, and will advance to the NC State Awards for Excellence program.  These six award recipients will receive a certificate, engraved clock, 8 hours of paid time off, and $250.
