Foundation Excellence Awards
The URI Foundation Excellence Awards were first established in 1970 to honor University staff members for their dedication and commitment. The awards were later expanded to include additional categories of individuals who demonstrated excellence in their respective areas and whose work positively impacted the entire University community.
Each year, following an extensive nomination process led by a member of the URI Foundation Executive Board, four individuals representing the following areas are chosen to receive Excellence Awards:
- Scholarly Excellence
- Teaching Excellence
- Staff Excellence
- Administrative Excellence
The winners of the 2012 Excellence Awards were honored during a special University-wide excellence ceremony that also included additional Univerity staff selected by other divisions/entities on campus. President Dooley presided over the ceremony, which was held in May, at Swan Hall. Foundation Excellence Award recipients were presented with certificates and a cash stipend in recognition of their outstanding contributions to the URI community.
The 2012 Foundation Excellence Award winners, pictured above with President Dooley, and their respective categories, are: Joseph G. Fuscaldo, Administrative Excellence; Lisa Harlow, Scholarly Excellence; Patricia Victoria, Staff Excellence; and, Stephen M. Barber, Teaching Excellence. To read the full press release, click here.
