Share | |

Posted on November 24, 2014

Nominations will be accepted through Dec. 5 for the 2015 Presidential Distinguished Merit Awards (formerly the Presidential Faculty Gala Awards).

Any member of the Cal U community — students, faculty, staff and alumni — may nominate a tenured faculty member who has demonstrated excellence in teaching, research or service. 

Self-nominations are permitted. Nominations close at 5 p.m. Dec. 5, 2014.

Award recipients will be recognized at the 2015 Honors Convocation. Each recipient will be presented with:

  • A medallion.
  • An engraved paperweight.
  • A check for $1,000.
  • A $1,000 scholarship for a student within the recipient’s department.

Make a nomination

Nominations will be accepted via e-mail only. Send nominations to the Presidential Distinguished Merit Awards Committee chair, Dr. Paul F. Crawford, at Crawford_p@calu.edu.

Each nomination must include:

  • Name of the nominee.
  • Category of nomination (teaching, research or service).
  • Name of the nominator

Eligibility

Nominees must be tenured faculty members.

Although a faculty member may be nominated in multiple categories, he or she may compete for only one award. The nominee may select the category.  For example, if someone is nominated in both the teaching and service categories, he or she may submit support materials for one or the other, but not both. 

 Support materials from nominees are due by 4 p.m. Jan. 21, 2015.
