CALL FOR NOMINATIONS
THE MTU FACULTY DISTINGUISHED SERVICE AWARD
Nature of the Award
The Faculty Distinguished Service Award is intended to complement the Distinguished Teaching and the Distinguished Research Awards already established at the University. It recognizes service to the University Community that has significantly improved the quality of some aspect of campus life. The work could have resulted, in part, from compensated efforts, but it must have been of a quality that distinguishes itself above and beyond the normal execution of those tasks. The Award is intended to recognize exceptional rather than integrated service. It is not a lifetime achievement award.
A cash prize of $2,500 accompanies the Award.
The Award is open to all full-time faculty. This includes lecturers and research faculty. Those who hold restricted appointments (e.g., Adjunct, Visiting, temporary or part-time faculty) are not eligible. Faculty who hold positions with a significant administrative component (e.g., deans, associate deans, department chairs) are not eligible for the award.
The Award will be presented during the fall semester. It need not be awarded every year and may not be awarded to the same person more than once in any ten-year period.
Nominations will be accepted from any member of the University community including faculty, staff, students, and alumni(ae) and should be received by the Committee by Monday, March 18, 2013 (Deadline extended to Monday March 25, 2013). To submit a nomination, see complete instructions. A complete nomination should
