Below are the campus-wide accolades, with their descriptions, that are currently open for nomination: Award of Merit, CAPE Award, INPSIRE Award, Janice Watkins Award, and Woman of the Year. Each of these awards is honored at the annual Employee Recognition Award Ceremony, to be held this year on November 4, 2014 at the UIC Forum.
