SAIR annual Awards fit into two distinct categories - personal service and best practices.
Personal Service Awards
These awards allow us to recognize and honor the work of our members. The links provide additional information about the awards and the prior winners.
The nomination process for these special recognition awards
occurs annually, prior to the Conference; a Call for Nominations is distributed
via SAIRMail and the Southern AIR newsletter.
Best Practice Awards
Note that in 2019 the SAIR board changed the categories for these awards to reflect the changing role of IR and the tools used to share information. In 2021, the SAIR Board added a fourth award category designed to recognize innovation in assessment and institutional research business operations and practices. The links provide additional information about the awards and the prior winners.
Submissions for the Best Practice Awards will be solicited in the Summer of 2024.
SAIR Best Paper Award
Awarded annually from among the papers and presentations made at each SAIR Conference, the Best Paper is selected by a panel of reviewers.
Winners of the Personal Service and Best Practice Awards will
be announced at the Tuesday morning SAIR Conference Awards Breakfast.
