Nominations are now open for the 2017 Dean’s Excellence Awards, an annual honor established to recognize the outstanding contributions made by faculty across the School of Medicine.
Two awards will be given in each year—one to a junior faculty member (instructor or assistant professor) and the other to a senior faculty member (associate professor or full professor)—in the areas of service, teaching, research, diversity enhancement and mentorship. All full-time faculty members are eligible for nomination. View profiles of previous award winners.
The awards will be selected in a peer-review process facilitated by a member of the Dean’s leadership team. Any full-time faculty member may nominate a faculty colleague for any of these awards and self-nominations will be accepted.
Nomination letters should specify the award, not exceed a length of one page (11 point font, one inch margins) and be submitted as paper or pdf documents to Heather McGuire (FOT 1207 or firstname.lastname@example.org), Faculty Recruiting and Awards Program Director by 5 p.m. on Friday, March 3, 2017. Individual letters of support are not required and will not be considered by the selection committees as a matter of fairness to all nominees. A current copy of the nominated faculty member’s curriculum vitae should accompany the nomination letter.
