CAPE Awards Presented; APAC Chair Gets Award of Merit
APAC Chair Michael Moss was presented an Award of Merit by Chancellor Paula Allen-Meares.
AMONG THOSE receiving awards at theEmployee Recognition Awards Program Nov. 2 were the four Chancellor’s Academic Professional Excellence (CAPE) recipients. The CAPESubcommittee, which is part of APAC, was established by the Office of the Chancellor to accept nominations for the CAPEAwards and to recommend awardees to the Chancellor, and had recommended this year’s winners.
“APAC THEREFORE plays a crucial role in the CAPEAwards process,” said CAPE Subcommittee Chair William S. Bike. “This award is for APs only, and those receiving it can be proud that they were recognized after a rigorous process in which the subcommittee worked closely with the Office of the Chancellor. Clearly, Chancellor Paula Allen-Meares recognizes the importance of the work of APs in keeping UIC a top-quality University.”
THIS YEAR’S CAPEAward recipients were Ann Kathleen Barnds, Assistant to the Director, College of Urban Planning and Public Affairs; Rhea M. Begeman, Administrative Director, Assistant to the Head, Department of Emergency Medicine; Marilyn Foster Kirk, Associate Vice Chancellor for Development; and William J. Susinka, Executive Assistant to the Provost.
ESTABLISHED IN 1988, the CAPEAward recognizes the demonstrated excellence of Academic Professional staff, encourages their professional development, and indicates UIC’s regard for APs’ contributions.
