Each year, NCURA recognizes one individual at the Annual Meeting who has made significant contributions to the profession of Research Administration and has demonstrated noteworthy service to NCURA by presenting its Robert C. Andresen Award for Outstanding Achievement in Research Administration.
Bob’s volunteer work for NCURA was known by many as he worked at the regional, national, and global levels. In addition to serving as NCURA President in 2016, Bob served as National Treasurer, FRA Conference Co-chair, Chair of the Financial Management Committee, Chair of the Nominating & Leadership Development Committee and a Member of the NCURA Board of Directors in addition to many other committees. A long-time NCURA traveling faculty, Bob was one of the developers and faculty of NCURA’s first global workshop that took place in Qatar in 2012. He went on to teach in other areas around the world, including England, Russia, Italy, UAE, and Saudi Arabia. In 2016 Bob led an NCURA delegation to Cuba in an effort to increase collaboration between US and Cuban scientists. Bob was awarded the Gold Award in 2021.
