President's Service Excellence Awards

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​"We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit." -- Aristotle​

The President Service Excellence Awards, which were first presented to four employees in the year 2000, are meant to credit and acknowledge the awardees for their achievement and to serve as an encouragement for others. The President's Service Excellence Award is given to AUB staff members who have shown continuous outstanding performance over a long period of time and have gone beyond the call of duty in helping students, patients, and fellow employees. Since the year 2000, four to six employees have been selected every year from among a number of nominees and have been presented the award in a ceremony to which faculty, students and staff are invited to recognize and congratulate them.
