Northeastern announced 13 Excellence Award recipients today, honoring staff members who led their teams and the university through an unprecedented global health crisis and helped reopen the Boston campus amidst the 2020 pandemic.
Many of the award recipients took on roles that went beyond their usual day-to-day responsibilities and mobilized their teams to tackle extraordinary challenges. They built a comprehensive COVID-19 testing and contact tracing operation, rolled out technology to enable synchronous remote and on-campus learning, reimagined every aspect of campus life, including dining and housing, and kept the campus and the community safe.
Many members of the university contributed to the successful reopening of the university. In addition to the Outstanding Innovation Award and the Outstanding Service Award recipients, a list of those staff members across the institution who are being formally recognized is below.
