Each fall the Graduate College issues a Call for Nominations of awards to acknowledge faculty and professionals who excel in their teaching and mentoring of graduate and professional students.
Typically, two such awards are given, each winner will receiving a cash award, a medallion and plaque. The award recipients will be honored during the Awards of Distinction Reception and Ceremony in the spring.
Tenure-track, tenured, and non-tenure eligible faculty who can demonstrate a long-standing commitment to graduate education are eligible. Candidates may be nominated by students, staff, faculty members, department heads, graduate program directors or deans. A committee of faculty members and university professionals will review the nomination packets and make their recommendations to the Dean of the Graduate College.
