CAPE Award, the Chancellor’s Academic Professional Excellence Award, established in 1988, recognizes the demonstrated excellence of academic professional staff, encourages their professional development and indicates the institution’s high regard for the contributions of this key segment of the academic community. The CAPE award is based on peer review broadly selected from the ranks of the Academic Professional community. The CAPE Selection Committee is a standing Committee of APAC. This subcommittee is chaired by an APAC member. The Selection Committee is made up of Academic Professionals from both the east and west campuses which may include past CAPE recipients. UIC faculty, academic professionals, support staff or students can make CAPE nominations. Each year, a maximum of four academic professionals may receive the CAPE Award. The award provides a $1,000 permanent increase to the individual’s salary, along with a $2,000 one-time cash award. CAPE Homepage
Each person at UIC impacts the relationships we build with students, faculty, alumni, and staff. Thus, the WOW Award was established in 2005 by the Alumni Relations Council to recognize those who make an exceptional effort to build these relationships. The WOW award is awarded one time per month and can be given to any faculty, staff or student who has made a positive impact on UIC. Recipients are surprised in their office by the "WOW patrol" and are given a certificate, balloon and button. Homepage
In 2007, the program added the INSPIRE Award to recognize individuals who have consistently, and over long periods of time based their every action on UIC’s Core Values, "Integrity, Nurture, Service, Pride, Intellect, Respect, and Excellence". An annual UIC Luminary Award is also given to the INSPIRE candidate who represents the pinnacle of service to the campus and its constituents. Citation Samples
