Award of Merit
The UIC Award of Merit was established to provide a mechanism for University leadership to recognize outstanding Civil Service and Academic Professional employees. It is a university-wide honor available to all UIC campus staff members who exhibit service, commitment and dedication. Employees based at the regional campuses and Chicago-based units of the University of Illinois System are also eligible.
The University Administration Distinguished Employee Leadership and Team Award (DELTA) is designed to annually recognize employees and teams within University Administration (UA) for their exceptional accomplishments and service to the University. Through this program, outstanding performance is encouraged in all UA employees.
The INSPIRE Award recognizes individuals who have consistently, and over long periods of time based their every action on UIC’s Core Values, “Integrity, Nurture, Service, Pride, Intellect, Respect, and Excellence”. An annual UIC Luminary Award is also given to the INSPIRE candidate who represents the pinnacle of service to the campus and its constituents.
