ELP Award

The Excellence in Leadership Program (ELP) is calling for nominations for its Excellence in Leadership Award, which recognizes the contributions of an outstanding graduate of the program.

Deadline for submissions is 5 p.m. Aug. 31. All ELP alumni who are currently working at CU are eligible to be nominated; self-nominations will not be accepted.

ELP, a systemwide program for faculty and staff, is designed to identify top talent at the university and support them in enhancing their leadership skills and their knowledge about CU. The program cultivates a cohort of leaders who can successfully address the key challenges of a dynamic university.

The Excellence in Leadership Award recognizes an ELP alumnus who has shown exemplary leadership at the university in one or more areas:

  • Leadership of organizations, departments or teams
  • Leadership of projects, programs and/or research
  • Fiscal management and/or fundraising
  • Student instruction

The award recipient and the nominator will be recognized at the Excellence in Leadership Luncheon and Lecture on Nov. 19 at Denver’s Brown Palace Hotel.

Nominations will be accepted from any CU employee who has worked or is working with the nominee. Lists of all ELP graduates and past award recipients, as well as the nomination form, are available on the ELP nomination page.
