UVA HR Wins Prestigious Award

Posted: February 19, 2018

UVA Human Resources is pleased to announce that it has received the 2018 Southern Region HR Excellence Award in recognition of its transformative human resources work in higher education, specifically for the Ufirst project. The award was presented at the Southern Region Symposium of the College & University Professional Association for Human Resources (CUPA), the nation’s premier higher education HR association. The symposium was held in Charleston, SC in early March.

The ambitious Ufirst project was launched to manage the complex transformation of UVA Human Resources, and to implement a better employment experience across the entirety of the university – the Academic Division, Medical Center, and University Physicians Group. The project also enhances UVA’s ability to recruit, hire, retain and develop top talent in support of excellence in education, research, patient care and public service.

Kelley Stuck, Vice President for Human Resources said, “We consider it an honor to be recognized for the outstanding work of the Ufirst team, and all members of the UVA HR community, who have worked extremely hard to make the HR transformation project successful. Everyone should be proud of their contributions.” Congratulations!
