Self-nominations from eligible faculty and professional staff are due by Friday, March 5, for the 2010 Outstanding Achievement in Research Award.

Nominations are due in the Research and Sponsored Programs Office (RSPO) no later than 4:30 p.m. The College Research Committee will evaluate all nominee materials on the basis of research contributions and credentials and target recommendations to the provost by Wednesday, April 7.

This competitive award will be given to a faculty or professional staff member whose career record of research achievements is deemed outstanding among others on this campus. The awardee will be selected based on at least five years of research-related activities at SUNY Cortland. The awardee will receive a $1,000 award and recognition at a reception on April 30.

Eligible candidates will be drawn from full-time, tenure-track faculty including library faculty and professional staff members.

Self-nominations must include one letter of support attesting to the research contributions of the nominee from either a department chair or school dean, for faculty, or from either a director or division head, for librarians and professional staff.  Department chairs, school deans, directors and division heads should strongly encourage their best researchers to apply.
