Call for Nominations for 2018 Alumni Award for Research Excellence

On behalf of the Alumni Association, the Office of the Vice President for Research and Innovation invites faculty to submit nominations for the Alumni Award for Research Excellence.

Awards are in the following two categories: science or engineering and social sciences, humanities, or arts with one award in each category and no more than one awardee from a single major unit (college or institute).

Two awards will be given in the coming year and will be presented at a ceremony in August/September, 2018.

Each recipient will be awarded $2000 and a plaque. Individuals who were nominated last year will automatically be considered for an award again this year by the committee, but the nominator is encouraged to update their nominees’ dossiers (e.g., CV, list of references). Within their dossier, all nominees' must list publications by category and provide a separate listing of grants and contracts that they have been awarded.

Nominations should be sent electronically to Monica Rich (, one PDF file preferred) by close of business on November 10, 2017.

Letters of recommendation will be requested by the Office of the Vice President for Research and Innovation and will be due by close of business on January 8, 2018 with awards being chosen no later than March 2, 2018.

Nominators should contact Monica Rich ( or 231-6077) by January 9, 2018 to confirm that letters of recommendation for their nominees have been received.
