In February, the University of Florida announced the division-level recipients of its 2019-2020 Superior Accomplishment Awards. The accolades recognize faculty and staff who have shown efficiency or economy in their work, have contributed outstanding and meritorious service, or who have improved the quality of life provided to students and employees.
All academic personnel, TEAMS employees and USPS staff members — except those at the department chair or director level and above — are eligible to participate. TEAMS is short for Technical, Executive, Administrative and Managerial Support and USPS stands for University Support Personnel System.
