Research Excellence Award — Nominations now open
UFV is pleased to announce the call for nominations for the Research Excellence Award. UFV will provide an award to an individual in recognition of research excellence.
Those eligible for nomination include all UFV “B” faculty who have completed their probationary period, or other instructors who have a cumulative equivalent of 2 years teaching time at UFV. Those who win the award cannot be nominated again for 5 years.
Nominations will be accepted from ‘B’ faculty, Sessional faculty, or university administrators, but may not be nominated by any member of the Senate Research Committee. No one may nominate himself or herself for this award.
Selection criteria include originality/innovation, academic impact, UFV/community impact/influence, and mentorship/interface of research and teaching. Emphasis will be placed on work accomplished as a member of the UFV community, but achievements within the past five years that were achieved elsewhere will be considered.
Completed nomination packages should be submitted confidentially to the attention of Deborah Block, Executive Assistant to the AVP, Research & Graduate Studies, Abbotsford room G290H. Nomination deadline for 2012-2013 to be announced.
