Awards

This week – March 8-12, 2021 – we are recognizing members of the CUE community who have shown kindness, empathy, and resiliency over the past year. We are also celebrating milestones and our retirees who have given their time and energy to our community, and impacted the lives of countless students and employees.

Celebrating Our Award Recipients

Today, we are proud to announce recipients of our three annual awards:

Each recipient was nominated by their peers for demonstrating excellence amid uncertainty, and going above and beyond to serve the CUE community.
