The annual Distinguished Administrator Award (DAA) recognizes outstanding administrative and professional performance that helps NYU meet its strategic initiatives and contributes to the attainment of the University's goals.
The DAA Selection Committee will consider many characteristics to determine the winners, but the following criteria will be used extensively. Each nominee should excel in one or more of the following areas:
New York University administrators and professional staff are eligible to receive the DAA. However, the following positions are not eligible:
The provost, dean of each school, and senior vice president of each administrative unit may form a nomination committee that comprises various constituencies within their areas. Faculty presence on the nomination committee is recommended.
Nominations are sought from faculty, administrators, staff, and students in each school and major division. The internal nomination committees for each area then recommends to the provost, dean, or senior vice president candidates, from among the nominees, to forward to the DAA Selection Committee for final selection. Final selections will not be based solely on quantity of supporting letters for each nominee, but on the examples submitted of how they meet each of the criteria competencies. Please note that only one nomination letter is needed for each DAA nominee from the respective provost, dean, or senior vice president.
It is important that the nomination process be an open one. It must reach out to the departmental level and not limit its focus to those who, due to the nature of their jobs, are most visible to school/administrative division heads.
Candidates may be nominated across school or unit lines (e.g., someone from the Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development may nominate someone from the Tisch School of the Arts), but the nomination form must be submitted to the nominee's Human Resources Officer/Business Partner.
The Human Resources Officer/Business Partner in each school/unit submits the final nominees to the DAA Selection Committee for consideration. Each school/administrative unit may also submit to the committee any criteria and procedures for selecting a nominee. Note: We ask that each school/administrative division keep its final nominees confidential until the selection is completed.
Original nomination form with:
Nominations from each school or administrative division should be submitted to their Human Resources Officer/Business Partner by Friday, December 20, 2013. As in previous years, this internal deadline may be extended (before or after the December 20 date) as long as Human Resources Officers/Business Partners are able to submit final nomination materials to the Compensation Office by Monday, February 3, 2014. This is a firm deadline. Nomination materials submitted to the Compensation Office after February 3 will not be accepted. Human Resources Officers/Business Partners should submit the final nomination materials by the Monday, February 3, 2014, deadline to the following address:
