2017 Service Excellence Week
This year, the annual uOttawa Service Excellence Week runs from October 2 to 6. Activities include conferences, the return of the pop-up café, a contest and student awards.
About the week
To celebrate everyone’s achievements in improving the student experience, the University encourages faculties and services to take part in the Week’s activities (see the program below) or to organize their own. If you decide to organize your own activities, they should reward and thank employees for major contributions over the past year, encourage teamwork, raise awareness about the importance of service excellence, and remind employees about the University’s commitment to service excellence. Show us how your team participated in the Week’s events and enter our contest to win a team lunch (see details below)!
(for all employees)
The Service Excellence Week pop-up café is the ideal opportunity to take a break with your colleagues over a cup of coffee. Join the Service Excellence team at University Square or Roger Guindon Hall. The café will take place simultaneously at both locations. Don’t forget to wear your nametag.
(by invitation only)
To celebrate everyone’s achievements in improving the student experience and to encourage more employees to promote the vision of Service Excellence, each participant is invited to take part in one of the conferences. (See the program above)
Service Excellence Student Awards
The University of Ottawa is proud to count among its staff members some of its own students. Their work greatly affects the student experience of their peers.
