Award for Excellence in Faculty Service

Plymouth State University’s Award for Excellence in Faculty Service is awarded to the faculty member who best exemplifies the goal of balanced and sustained service that has had a quality impact on the campus, the faculty member’s profession, or the broader community.  The recipient of this Award will exemplify dedication and sustained service, as suggested in PSU’s motto, Ut Prosim (that I may serve).

Eligibility:

Voting members of the faculty with five or more years of service at PSU. Faculty may not self-nominate. (There is no limit on the number of times an individual may receive this award. However after receiving the award, there will be a five year waiting period for future eligibility).

The following people are currently ineligible: Patricia Cantor, Catherine LeBlanc, John Krueckeberg, Mary Cornish, and Paul Rogalus.

Criteria:

Award recipients must demonstrate evidence of continuing service to the University, his/her profession, or the broader community. Service must exceed the work generally considered to be part of a faculty member’s basic professional obligations. The scope of the service may extend over several years and must be geared toward affecting positive change.

Process:

Nominations will be solicited from all constituencies of the campus community.

Nominations must be submitted electronically by 5pm on Friday, February 20, 2015 using this link:

Three finalists will be chosen, and will be asked for:

  1. a copy of his/her curriculum vitae;
  2. a concise statement of her/his service philosophy and description of most prominent contributions; and
  3. two letters of support (of which at least one letter needs to be from someone on campus)

The two finalists not selected this year will automatically, with their permission, be considered for the following year’s award.

The Award for excellence in faculty service will be presented on Faculty Day.

We value our exemplary faculty and are happy and proud to have the opportunity to publicly celebrate their excellence.
