Faculty Awards

Academic Affairs seeks nominations for the following academic awards for the upcoming year:

  • The Mines Teaching Award (Teaching Faculty)
  • The Mines Teaching Award (Tenured or Tenure-track faculty)
  • The Board of Trustees Outstanding Faculty Award
  • The Alfred E. Jenni Teaching Fellowship
  • Faculty Excellence Award
  • Mentorship Awards
  • Excellence in Research Awards (Junior and Senior Faculty)

Anyone may nominate a faculty member. To do so, submit a one page memo to Academic Affairs, which details

  • Name of the nominee and department/division
  • Which of the awards above you are nominating the candidate for
  • Why the individual’s profile/accomplishments fit the award and what kind of data would be supplied to support the nomination, if a full dossier is requested by the Faculty Awards Committee.

Nominations are due to Academic Affairs generally by mid-December.

Information on the awards can be found in Section 8 of the Academic Affairs Procedures Manual, available on the Academic Policies website. Once received, the Faculty Awards committee will review the one page nominations and decide if a full dossier will be requested of the nominee’s department head/division director. Dossiers for each award should then be submitted to Academic Affairs (date to be determined).
