Faculty and professional staff members whose career record of research achievements is deemed outstanding among others on this campus are encouraged to apply for the 2011 Outstanding Achievement in Research Award.
Self-nominations for this competitive award are due by 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday, March 1, in the Research and Sponsored Programs Office (RSPO). The College Research Committee will evaluate all nominee materials on the basis of research contributions and credentials and target recommendations to the provost by Monday, April 4.
The awardee will be selected based on at least five years of research-related activities at SUNY Cortland. The recipient will receive a $1,000 award and recognition at a reception on Thursday, May 12. Eligible candidates will be drawn from full-time, tenure-track faculty, including library faculty and professional staff members. Past awardees are not eligible for this award.
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.
