Outstanding Mid-Level Professional Award



The Outstanding Mid-Level Professional Award is presented annually by OCPA. This award recognizes the hard work and commitment to our field for professionals who no longer identify as a new professional, but still make valuable contributions that positively impact those they collaborate and work with as well as to their respective institution and the field of Higher Education.

The selection criteria for the Outstanding Mid-Level Professional Award are as follows:

  • Outstanding commitment to the profession with at least 5 years of professional experience
  • Professional responsibility for the direction, oversight, and/or supervision of one or more functional areas, and/or one or more professional staff members
  • Experience creating campus environments that promote student learning and personal development
