Excellence in Leadership Award nomination deadline is Friday

The Office of Employee Learning and Development requests nominations for the second annual Excellence in Leadership Award, which will be presented at the Excellence in Leadership Program (ELP) lecture and luncheon Nov. 5.

The award recognizes a graduate of the ELP who has shown exemplary leadership at the University of Colorado. Nominations should demonstrate leadership in one or more of the following areas:

  • Organization, departments or teams
  • Projects, programs or research
  • Fiscal management or fundraising
  • Student instruction

All ELP graduates who currently work at CU are eligible to be nominated for the award. Self-nominations will not be accepted.

For a list of all program graduates and details about the award, go to http://www.cu.edu/content/leadershipprograms. A nominator must be a CU employee who has worked with the nominee. The selection committee consists of representatives from each campus and system administration.

Nominations must include a completed nomination form (posted at the website); the form and any supporting material must be sent to the Employee Learning and Development office by e-mail to Erin.Russell@cu.edu. Nominations are due Friday, Oct. 1.

Free presentation to detail 'Networking for Success in the Digital Age'

Storm Gloor, assistant professor at the University of Colorado Denver College of Arts and Media, music and entertainment industry studies, will present "Networking for Success in the Digital Age" from 11 a.m. to noon Wednesday, Oct. 13, in the Tivoli, Room 640, on the Auraria Campus in Denver.

The free event is open to all interested UC Denver students and the general public.

In terms of career preparation, it's been said that the perfect complement to what you know is who you know. While a great education can provide the former, successful networking skills are key to obtaining the latter. Technology has perhaps made the art of networking more "social," but at the same time more challenging.

In this presentation, we'll cover basic and emerging principles, philosophies, and techniques behind making "who you know" an asset in your career planning.
