Criteria for Award:
The Chancellor’s Innovator Award recognizes staff who bring fresh ideas to their work, inspires a spirit of innovation, and takes a bold approach to accomplish their work. Innovation and a bold, creative approach are vital to higher education – so it’s imperative to recognize and reward innovation throughout the organization.
