Nomination Tips:

Over time, as the quality of the candidates has increased, selection committees have found it more difficult to choose award winners. Consequently, we asked the Chancellor’s Associates Faculty Excellence Awards Selection Committee members to tell us what factors most influenced their decisions.

Committee members indicated that the ultimate selections made are influenced by the following:

  • the depth and quality of nominations
  • the strength and enthusiasm of nominations
  • nominator's gathering of input from multiple sources/professional references

We hope these comments from past selection committee members give your candidates the best possible opportunity for a recognition award. Good luck, and thank you for participating in the Chancellor’s Associates faculty recognition program.
