Please join us for a special ceremony recognizing the outstanding contributions of nonfaculty members at NC State. We are thankful for their service and dedication to NC State and their Think and Do attitude, especially as we continue to navigate the challenges of COVID-19.

We are excited to share with you the 2020 NC State Awards for Excellence Virtual Ceremony and the ceremony program book, honoring the outstanding accomplishments and contributions of the 56 individuals nominated for the Awards for Excellence. Because of physical distancing guidelines amid the COVID-19 pandemic, we were unable to host an in-person ceremony this year.

The Awards for Excellence is the most prestigious honor bestowed upon nonfaculty employees at NC State. Each year, all colleges and units across NC State nominate employees to be recognized as Award for Excellence recipients. Award for Excellence recipients are recognized for their  tireless commitment to outstanding service and represent the best of NC State.  

During this virtual ceremony, we announce the 12 Awards for Excellence winners. We hope you take some time to enjoy the ceremony and join us in celebrating the achievements of these employees.

The nomination period for the 2021 Awards for Excellence program opens Jan. 1, 2021. If you know of someone who exemplifies excellence and performs above and beyond the call of duty, please consider nominating them for this prestigious award on the Awards for Excellence webpage.
