University Life Technology Services Team wins Models of Excellence

The Models of Excellence Award program celebrates the extraordinary achievements of full- and part-time staff across the University’s schools and centers. The program helps Penn staff feel more connected to the University’s successes. It positively affects not only those who are recognized, but also their fellow nominees, those who submit nominations and references, the people who work with the honorees, and the honorees’ families and friends—all of whom are invited to the springtime award ceremony and reception.

New for 2021 only, the Sustaining Penn Through COVID-19 Award will shine a light on those individuals or teams that contributed directly to creating extraordinary outcomes for the Penn community. They may include those who serve in roles maintaining life-sustaining on-campus services and support, delivering mission-critical programs and services from their homes, finding new ways to work safely onsite, and improving the morale and well-being of students, staff, and faculty at a time of need.

The University Life Technology Services Team—working on behalf of the larger Penn community, in addition to its divisional obligations—securely administers the COVID-19 tests that enable Penn to keep students, staff, and faculty as safe and healthy as possible. The University Life Technology Services team’s support of the departments in University Life allows students to receive seamless care and support with minimal disruption to their student experience.
