UNH Faculty Awards Nomination Process
Each academic year the provost and vice president for academic affairs sends a memorandum to all faculty, department chairs, directors, deans and others soliciting nominations for specific faculty awards. The process is completed by spring.
Please note: Only one nomination submission per nominee for a given award is permitted. Before preparing a nomination, a nominator should check with the nominee’s department chair to ensure that no other nomination of the nominee for that award is being prepared.
A formal nomination is required.
Each nomination must include:
a. A letter from the nominator. Indicate the specific reasons the faculty member is being nominated for the specific award and provide evidence in support of the nomination. Be sure to address the award criteria.
b. The nominee's curriculum vitae (CV).
c. Two (2) letters of reference that address the nominee's qualifications for the specific award. Do not submit more than two letters of reference. (Note: Unless there is a compelling reason, do not include a letter from the nominee’s dean/director during the first round of review. The committee will solicit a reference letter from the dean/director if the nominee becomes a finalist for the award.)
Self-nominations are acceptable.
Such nominations must include a self-nomination letter, CV, and two reference letters, as described above.
Electronic submission is required.
All nomination materials must be submitted electronically no later than noon (12:00 p.m.) Friday, March 4, 2022. Nominations will not be accepted after this deadline. All material must be submitted by the nominator in digital form only, using MS Word or pdf file attachments. The nominator must send all of the nomination materials, in one submission, to: UNH.FacultyAwards@unh.edu
Submissions will be acknowledged by the Office of the Provost within four business days. If the nominator has not received an acknowledgment of receipt by then, please send an inquiry to: UNH.FacultyAwards@unh.edu or call 862-3290.
Please note: The nominator should collect all of the nomination materials and submit them at one time to: UNH.FacultyAwards@unh.edu
All nomination materials—the nomination letter, nominee's CV, and two letters of reference—must be submitted by the nominator.
The deadline of March 4, 2022 at noon is a firm deadline for receipt of all materials in support of a nomination. Materials will be provided to faculty awards committee members the day following the deadline. Nominators are urged to prepare and submit nomination materials prior to the deadline.
Address any questions to the Chair of the Faculty Awards Committee (Professor Eliga Gould, at: Eliga.Gould@unh.edu or call 862-3012).
