Faculty Year-End Awards

We are pleased to announce that the nominating process for the 2018–2019 annual year-end awards has begun. The awards honor outstanding members of the Rutgers community selected by their colleagues for exceptional contributions to teaching, research, or public service through a program of six awards.  For each award, the recipient receives a commemorative certificate and an honorarium.

All faculty members, staff members, and student leaders should be made aware of the appropriate awards programs and encouraged to submit nominations in the relevant categories.

Details

Please Note: The nomination process has been streamlined; if you wish to re-nominate a previously nominated candidate, you may update the cover letter and submit materials from the previous year’s packet.

  • Students and staff members, as well as faculty members, are eligible for the Rutgers College Class of 1962 Presidential Public Service Award and the Ernest E. McMahon Class of 1930 Award. The nomination of students and staff for these two public service awards is particularly encouraged.
  •  Individuals may receive one award in each of the relevant award categories during their service at Rutgers, and should not be nominated in a category in which they already have received an award.   
  • For the teaching, research, and scholar-teacher awards, nomination packets must be reviewed and approved by the candidate's department head/chair and dean/director, and submitted by the dean/director to the Office of the Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs. These nominations will be reviewed by universitywide faculty committees, who will submit their recommendations to Barbara Lee, the Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs, and the President.
  • Students, staff, faculty members, and recognized student or staff organizations are eligible to be nominated for the Rutgers College Class of 1962 Presidential Public Service Award. Nominations may be submitted by staff, faculty, and administrators. Nomination packets must be reviewed and approved by the candidate's department head/chair and dean/director, prior to submission.
  • The Ernest E. McMahon Class of 1930 Award also has a separate and distinct nominating process that does not require departmental or decanal approval of nominations.
