Faculty Service Awards Committee

 
FUNCTION
This committee is a regular standing committee of the Faculty Senate. The University of Wisconsin-Whitewater honors a faculty member each year who has demonstrated outstanding service to the University and the academic profession.
 
The recipient of the award will:
  • Be honored at a reception sponsored by the Chancellor and the Provost and receive a framed certificate,
  • Receive a monetary award,
  • Have his/her name and photograph displayed in the Andersen Library for one year,
  • Be recognized at the Spring commencement ceremony, and
  • Receive recognition at the Chancellor's welcoming speech for the Fall semester.
 
"Service" is defined as contributions to the University, as well as professional and public services activities.
  • Contributions to the University include contributions to the governance, administration, and operation of the institution.
  • Professional and public service activities include activities in the faculty member's discipline, art, profession, or society, provided that the faculty member provides such service as a practitioner of his/her discipline, art, or profession, or as a representative of the University or University system.
  • Consult the Standard Classification of Performance Data for a list of service activities.
  • Teaching and research activities are excluded from consideration for this award.
  • Nomination Process
 
The process for nominating individuals for the Faculty Service Award varies. Some departments nominate individuals, and Colleges may have their own processes for selecting nominees. There is also an open call for nominations in the form of a Qualtrics Survey. A faculty member, staff member, a college, an academic department or program may nominate someone for this award. Any individual nominated must be a tenured or tenure-track faculty member and must not be a previous recipient of this award.
 
The following materials need to be submitted by candidates to the Faculty Senate Chair by February 15 of each year:
  1. A letter of nomination no longer than two typed letter-sized pages.
  2. A narrative of no longer than three typed pages describing the significance of the candidate's service activities.
  3. A listing of titles and dates of service activities. Contributions identified by an applicant must have been made while a member of the faculty at UW-Whitewater.
  4. A completed Faculty and Academic Staff Awards Nominee Submission Form that includes information about the nominee and the award under consideration and a one-paragraph biography of the nominee for inclusion in the award program (150 word maximum).
If materials are missing, an individual's nomination for this award may not be considered.
 
After the February 15 deadline, the Faculty Service Award Committee will review materials and make a selection, and the decision will be transmitted to the Office of Provost by March 31.
