In its Policy Direction for Human Resources, the UFV Board of Governors asserts its belief that the university is a vibrant and diverse scholarly community which values learning and social, intellectual and personal development; embraces challenge; and promotes the respectful debate of ideas and views. The Board further believes an inclusive, welcoming and engaging work environment is integral to attracting, retaining and developing employee potential and in attracting and enabling volunteers who wish to serve the university as it fulfills its mission of providing the best undergraduate education in Canada.

In support of this policy direction, the Employee Leadership Awards program recognizes and celebrates employees who inspire others through their outstanding achievement within the university or their community. Open to all continuing employees of the university, these awards will recognize who have made a significant contribution in one of the following award areas: Support Staff, Administrator/Manager, and Effective Team.


UFV Staff, faculty, students, Alumni and members of the general community may nominate candidates for one of the above categories. Nominations must include the name, telephone number and affiliation to UFV of the nominator, the specific award category and supporting information on the nominee(s). Nomination forms must be submitted to Human Resources on or before March 1, 2013.  

An Awards Selection Committee, appointed by the university, will review and recommend that awards for each category be made to an employee or team of employees. Award recipients will be recognized at a dinner being held on Thursday, April 18, 2013 where they will be presented with their award.

Nomination forms are available in the Human Resources department or by accessing the following electronic versions: (COMING SOON)
