Q: How are winners selected?

A: Small and Large Team awards are determined by the Chancellor's Cabinet. Individual award nominations are reviewed by various committees convened by the Office of the Chancellor, or advisory boards related to the award category. For example, nominations for the sustainability award are reviewed by the Sustainability Action Board, and nominations for the diversity award are reviewed by the office of Campus Diversity and Compliance. These committees and boards make recommendations to the chancellor, who then makes the final decision.
