Bryan School Faculty Service Award
Purpose of the Award
The Bryan School Faculty Service award has been established to recognize and reward members of the faculty of the Bryan School of Business and Economics that provide outstanding service to their departments, the school, the university, the community, in ways that advance the School’s mission and/or their academic discipline.
In addition to recognition, recipients shall receive a commemorative plaque and a check for $1,000.
Members of the faculty are eligible after two years of full-time service to the Bryan School of Business and Economics. Nominees may not have won the award during the previous three years.
Nominations may be made by the Bryan School’s faculty, staff, or students. Self-nominations are welcomed. A nomination packet should include a letter that summarizes the nominee’s service record and contributions, as well as a current C.V. Other documentation, such as relevant letters of thanks or commendation, or of related awards from other groups, is welcomed.
Guidelines for Selection
Service is required of virtually all full-time faculty members and is critical to our ability to function and even excel as a School and University. At the same time, there are those who go beyond the scope of the normal responsibilities of a faculty member or achieve outcomes from their service that are exceptional or have a sustained high level of service performance over a period of years often while excelling in other areas. It is that performance we seek to capture and recognize with this award.
The evaluation of a nominee’s service record includes consideration of the formal and informal service roles of the nominee, including uncompensated leadership; both the quality and impact of his or her work; and the contributions he or she has made to the effective operation of the School, University, community, and the professions. Consistent with the UNCG Gladys Strawn Bullard Service awards, “recipients will exemplify qualities worthy of emulation: a positive and constructive attitude, a sense of humor and appreciation of people and of the satisfaction and pleasure which may be derived from rendering service.”
Examples of service may include, but are not limited to:
- Significant and meaningful work and outcomes on a committee or task force within s Department. The School, or the University;
- Spearheading projects that engage external constituents in meaningful ways and with exceptional results; and
- Serving as an officer or leading a significant committee or fulfilling another significant leadership role in a professional organization, such as an academic society, that enhances the School’s mission or academic/community reputation.
Initially a committee of faculty members shall be appointed by the Dean to review and provide an assessment of each nominee to the Dean. In the second year, the previous year’s winner will join two returning committee members and will serve a three-year term on the committee. That rotation shall continue until the committee is made up of past winners serving staggered three-year terms.
If you would like to make a nomination, please complete the nomination form on this page. Nominations will be accepted until 5 pm on March 31, 2019.
Presentation of the Award
The award will be presented at the final Spring Faculty Assembly or the final Spring BizMtg+ depending on schedules and agenda items.
