Dear Students, Faculty and Staff,

The Chancellor's Academic Professional Excellence (CAPE) Award, established in 1988, recognizes the demonstrated excellence of academic professional staff members and affirms our highest regard for the contributions of this important community to UIC. This year, six academic professionals will receive the CAPE Award, which provides a $1,000 permanent increase to the honoree’s salary and a $2,000 one-time cash award.

Nominations are welcomed from UIC faculty, students, academic professionals, and support staff. I also encourage you to resubmit past nominees. The nominating form, procedures, and eligibility criteria are online. The deadline for nominations and all supporting credentials is noon on June 24. Awards will be presented November 15 at the UIC Employee Recognition ceremony and reception at the UIC Forum. Details will follow closer to the event.

Please contact Ahlam Al-Kodmany, Chair of the 2016 CAPE Selection Committee, at
or 6-7458 with any questions. Information will also be on the APAC website.

I look forward to celebrating our outstanding Academic Professionals this fall.


Michael D. Amiridis
