UO Senate Leadership and Service Award for Officers of Administration

The UO Senate Leadership and Service Award for Officers of Administration was created on February 9, 2011. Each year, the Officers of Administration senators invite nominations to select a member of our constituency who has demonstrated outstanding leadership and service to the University of Oregon.

Nomination Criteria:

Nominations will be evaluated by the OA Award Committee based on the following:

1) Exemplary service over a period of years to the university through participation in committees, advisory bodies, or elected positions, and

2) Inspired leadership and commitment to the principles of shared governance, participatory decision making, and fostering a campus climate of inclusiveness, respect, and professional excellence.

How to Nominate Someone:

Describe in detail why you believe the nominee is deserving of recognition.

2019-20: Please submit your nomination via email to Betina Lynn, Senate Executive Coordinator, senatecoordinator@uoregon.edu, by Friday, April 17, 2020.

Nomination Procedure:

The entire campus, including faculty, officers of administration, classified staff, and students will be solicited for a minimum of a one paragraph nomination for the award. If there are a significant number of outstanding nominations, the Officers of Administration Council (OAC) will recognize additional nominees at an OAC event.


The current Officers of Administration senators are responsible for facilitating the award process and will serve as the Award Committee and forward the top nomination to the full UO Senate for action.
