MORGANTOWN, WV -

West Virginia University's Margaret Phillips was awarded the College and University Professional Association for Human Resources' national award for Excellence in Human Resources Practices.

Phillips, appointed WVU's first vice president for human resources in 2006, first was recognized with CUPA-HR's Southern Region award, a prerequisite for the national award. In addition to West Virginia, the region covers Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia.

The national award, which includes a $2,000 contribution to the endowment of the recipient's choice, recognizes "college and university HR professionals or teams at CUPA-HR member institutions in improving the quality of programs and services on their own campuses through effective HR administration practices." CUPA-HR has more than 16,000 human resources professionals and other campus leaders from more than 1,900 member organizations, including 91 percent of all doctoral granting universities.

Phillips came to WVU in 1982 as a compensation analyst and served in various positions, including chief of staff to former President David C. Hardesty Jr. before being named vice president for human resources, a cabinet-level position.
