Call for Nominations
Board of Regents Faculty Awards

On behalf of the Board of Regents and President Gregory W. Gray, the ConnSCU Office of Academic Affairs invites nominations for campus-based and system-wide recognitions of excellence in teaching or research/creative/scholarly work by full-time, junior faculty members of the Connecticut State Colleges & Universities. The awards are:

Teaching Awards
The awards are given to recognize faculty who have distinguished themselves as outstanding teachers for at least five years and have a minimum of two years’ track record of promoting instructional improvements for their programs/departments.

Research Awards
The awards are given to recognize faculty from the state universities who are doing exceptional research/creative work.

Scholarly Excellence Awards
The awards are given to recognize faculty at the community colleges who are doing exceptional scholarly work befitting the community college mission.

Each campus will select a recipient of the teaching and research/creative/scholarly work awards and those awardees will be eligible for the four system-wide awards. The campus selection process will be developed and implemented under the leadership of its chief academic officer. The campus’ nomination for the award recipient will be submitted to the Board by the institution’s president. A system’s selection committee will review the campuses’ nominations and make a recommendation for the award to the Board’s Academic Affairs Committee for its review and endorsement to the Board. Guidelines for the nomination and selection procedures have been established for each award.
