Leadership Awards

In recognition of their critical contribution, the Labor Program Office presents annual awards to faculty and staff labor leaders who serve in many capacities through their positions within the Labor Program: supervisor, mentor, teacher, adviser, counselor, and friend.

Every department has at least one supervisor, but departments vary greatly in size and structure, which impacts the dynamics of labor supervision. As such, the Supervisor of the Year and Mentor of the Year awards are granted in three categories based on the size of the department. Awards are driven by student nomination letters, which are reviewed and ranked by the Award Selection Panel.
