Nominate Now for Chancellor's Awards

VALDOSTA - Nominations will be accepted for the second annual Chancellor's Customer Service Awards until July 31, and all members of the VSU community are invited to recognize that individual or team that truly makes a difference at Valdosta State University.

The best in customer services will be chosen in six categories, including individual, team, leadership, call center/help desk, process improvement and institution of the year. All nominations must be based on activities that occurred between July 1, 2007 and July 30, 2008; individuals must be employed full-time and not under any disciplinary action. Selections will be made based on consistent performance levels that meet or exceed expectations or requirements.

Last year, the OASIS Center for Advising and First Year programs was chosen as a gold level institution in the chancellor's awards because of its efforts in serving more than 1.500 students through the Freshman Year Experience and other programs. The team, which works together to ensure student needs are met in a fast, friendly and reliable manner, has successfully led many students to return for advising time and time again.

VSU has many departments and individuals that provide exceptional service and this is the perfect opportunity to give them the recognition they deserve. The nomination form and additional information can be found at www.customerfocus.usg.edu/form . Call Becky Murphy, assistant director for Employee and Organizational Development, at (229) 259-5105 or rbowes@valdosta.edu with any questions.
