The Presidential Excellence Awards are given to Administrative and Professional (A&P) and Support (USPS), Out-of-Unit Faculty or OPS staff for notable contributions to the University that are significantly above and beyond the range of the job assignment and performance expectations. This award is designed to have 1st and 2nd place winners with monetary awards of $2,000 and $800 respectively.


The Presidential Quality Customer Service Award is granted to any UNF department, office or unit that has contributed to the enhancement of quality customer service at the University, proven exceptional initiative in "going the extra mile" to provide service to internal and external customers with timely and appropriate follow up, confirmed responsiveness to the needs of students, patrons or customers and demonstrated improvement of customer service and satisfaction. The department honored with this recognition will be awarded $500 to be used for a Department event.


The Presidential 'Spot' Award is designed to reward someone for an act that seemingly took a simple effort but ultimately will have lasting positive effects on either students, faculty, staff, visitors or safety in the workplace. UNF's Presidential Spot Award is your opportunity to nominate a colleague for their extraordinary action.
