History of Awards
I.C.E. Award (Innovation, Collaboration and Excellence)
In 2008 the Vice President for Information Technology created an IT Recognition Committee to specifically develop an IT award to recognize an individual who has resolved an IT challenge through innovative means. The committee created the IT I.C.E. Award, which stands for Innovation, Collaboration and Excellence. This award recognizes an individual who demonstrates "out of the box" thinking, builds positive relationships, and exhibits performance excellence.
Recognition and appreciation are the compliments employees most desire in today’s work environment. Publicly acknowledging colleagues who have demonstrated their professionalism, knowledge, performance, and collaborative connections to enhance the IT organization and help the institution reach its goals is extremely important.
IT Team Award
In 2010, a new IT Team Award was developed. Teamwork is the foundation of how the IT Division operates. To meet many of the organizational goals, we must engage in work that involves many constituents – both internally and externally to the campus. This award focuses on the achievement, success, communication, commitment and leadership of an IT Team.
