Employee Recognition and Professional Development

University Administration
Distinguished Employee Leadership and Team Award (DELTA)


Background

Each year, the Distinguished Employee and Leadership Team Award (DELTA) selection committee, comprised of UA leaders along with four of the award winners from the previous years, meet to select new recipients. This award is designed to recognize individual employees and teams for their exceptional accomplishments, service and dedication to the University. Since the 2008 inauguration of the UA Distinguished Employee Leadership and Team Award (DELTA), 167 UA employees have been recognized as DELTA award recipients. Executives from University Administration make the presentations at the awards ceremony.

Individuals receiving awards will receive a glass trophy, certificate and one-time cash award of $1,500. Members of a team receiving the team award will also receive a glass trophy, certificate and equally share a one-time cash award at a maximum of $6,500, not to exceed $1,500 per person.

The number of individual and team awards is dependent upon the number of outstanding nominees and the budget available. All awards will not be granted unless there is a full slate of candidates that meet the DELTA award criteria. DELTA is awarded to Civil Service and Academic Professional employees. Recipients will be honored at an annual award event.


Objectives

  • Recognize that the University Administration provides important contributions to the University.
  • Demonstrate that outstanding performance is recognized and nurtured at the University.
  • Encourage continued superior performance and leadership from employees.
  • Recognize that our short term may be challenging and that it will require innovation, continued dedication and strong performance of our employees to shape our future.
