Nominations are open for the 2021-22 Duke Presidential Awards, which will recognize exceptional contributions by staff and faculty members throughout Academic Year 2020-21.

The Presidential Awards program, organized by the Office of the President in partnership with Duke Human Resources, recognizes individuals and teams who best demonstrate the values that define and shape Duke as an institution. The awards are the highest honor given to Duke to staff and faculty members.

Nominations should take into consideration those who, through their exceptional contributions, exemplify Duke's five institutional values of Respect, Trust, Inclusion, Discovery, and Excellence. Individuals and teams can be nominated both for contributions over the past year or for extraordinary service over the course of a longer period.

Nominations are open for individuals or teams across all job families and classifications of employment across the university and health system. Full-time and part-time benefits-eligible employees are eligible for consideration; past winners and members of the President’s Senior Leadership Group and the Chancellor's Leadership Team are not eligible.

Nominations remain open through Dec. 6, 2021. Any member of the Duke community can submit an individual nomination or a team nomination.

Following the nomination period, Duke University President Vincent E. Price will appoint a committee to review nominations and recommend individuals and teams to be awarded. President Price will then select the winners and, with the senior leadership of the university and health system, honor them during an awards ceremony and reception in April 2022.

All winners will receive an award and special prize.
