CUAES Staff Awards

CUAES manages approximately 3,500 acres of fields, forests, farms and facilities. We support hundreds of research projects that help solve real-world problems, from improving agricultural crops resistance to pests, to addressing world hunger.

Without the dedication and hard work of our staff, Cornell would not have the reputation of being a world leader in research that not only improves knowledge, but improves the lives of all people.

We want to recognize your contribution. Winners of CUAES awards will be profiled on our website so we can all learn a little bit more about what we do as individuals that adds to the whole.

Employee Appreciation Award

Supervisors, if you have an employee at CUAES who has shown unusual dedication, insight, teamwork, or provides an example of excellence in the field, please nominate them for our Employee Appreciation Award.
