CAUT is soliciting nominations for the 2013 CAUT Distinguished Academic Award. The Award is given annually to recognize an academic who has excelled in each of the three principal aspects of academic life: teaching, research, and service to the institution and to the community. The recipient will be an individual whose teaching, research and service has contributed significantly to the lives of students, to their institution, to their field of study, and to the community.
Nominations for the Award may be submitted by individuals, member associations or others. The deadline for nominations will be September 9, 2013.
Nominators should submit a letter explaining the rationale for the nomination and give detailed information about the nominee’s record in teaching, research and service. It is essential that the nominator provide information for each of these three areas as excellence in all three is a requirement for eligibility for the Award. The nominator should also include documentation that would help the jury in its decision making. It is the responsibility of the nominators to provide all necessary information as the jury will review only the material it receives.
Nominations will be adjudicated by a jury of the most recent former presidents of CAUT. The jury’s recommendation will be made to the Fall Council for approval.
The award will be presented at the Spring CAUT Council. The recipient will be invited to give an address to Council. The address will be subsequently published by CAUT. The recipient will receive a $1,000 honorarium with the award.
