The inaugural Team Achievement Award, an exciting new initiative introduced in academic year 2013-2014, is designed to recognize and reward superior performance by groups of cross-functional teams in support of transformational projects across NYU which further the University’s mission and priorities. The establishment of the Team Achievement Award reflects the complex environment of the University and reinforces the collaboration and partnership necessary to achieve key goals. Teams may be nominated by their team leader, project sponsor, or other key leader of the University for whom the team’s efforts yield benefit.
There are four criteria that will be used in determining the winning team, which should excel in one or more of the below areas. Results should be tangible, measurable, and verifiable.
The award selection committee will review and consider nominations received for the Team Achievement Award.
The recipients of the Team Achievement Award will be announced in the spring. The winning team (one maximum per academic year), including any recipients of Honorable Mention (up to two maximum per academic year), attend a special recognition event and receive a commemorative plaque. Exclusive to and shared by members of the winning team is a maximum team cash award of $25,000, with individual caps of at $3,000 per recipient, while all nominated teams receive a certificate commemorating their work and nomination. The University retains the right not to select any teams in any year if none of the nominated teams meet the criteria for the Team Achievement Award.
