External Awards Facilitation

Canadian Association of University Business Officers (CAUBO) Awards


The Canadian Association of University Business Officers (CAUBO) promotes the professional and effective delivery of services and administration of resources in all facets of higher education. This annual awards program is designed to recognize, reward and share achievements of administrators in the introduction of new services, improvement in the quality of services provided, and the management of human, financial, and physical resources. Initiatives from across universities and colleges, including academic initiatives, are welcome and will be considered on the grounds of increased quality, productivity and effectiveness. Increased quality of instruction alone will not be considered, since it is beyond the scope of the CAUBO mandate, and other venues exist for its recognition.

Three National awards are given annually for the best three submissions nationally. No institution may receive more than one National award per year. First prize is $10,000; second prize is $5,000; third prize is $3,000. Four Regional awards (plaques) are given for the best submission in each region (Atlantic Canada, Quebec, Ontario and Western Canada) which does not win a National award.


All CAUBO member universities are eligible. Academic and administrative initiatives are considered.
