Announcing the new 2023 Fulton Difference Awards — submit your nominations by Feb. 20!

Fulton Difference Awards

The Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering has evolved, formalizing its core values and initiating a process to communicate them to Fulton Schools community members — our students, staff and faculty — and, in turn, our external stakeholders. 

A key piece in the core values evolution includes the realignment of staff awards to recognize and reward staff who exemplify the Fulton Schools values in their work and service. The awards are designed to promote, recognize and reward excellence in contributions made to the Fulton Schools and the university through innovative projects, mentoring, accomplishments in performance, personal achievements, advances in customer service, teamwork and exemplary leadership. Award winners will receive recognition at the annual Fulton Difference Awards and Recognition event, a plaque and monetary stipend.

“Launching formal Fulton Schools values and aligning them with the new Fulton Schools staff awards is a perfect fit,” says Elizabeth Cross, senior events coordinator for the Fulton Schools. “Awards will serve as an important mechanism to encourage staff to think about how each of us fit and perform in relation to the values. I’m excited by how these two initiatives blend together.”

Recognize the outstanding work of Fulton Schools staff through the following categories:

  • Rookie of the Year Award.
  • Innovation Award.
  • Level Up Award.
  • Leadership Award.
  • Excellence in Service Award.
  • Teamwork Award.
  • Inclusion Award.
  • Living the Values Award.
