Call for nominations: Faculty Community Service Award

By Staff

The Office of Academic Affairs is soliciting nominations for the annual Faculty Community Service Award.

An endowment from the Chase Corporation through the CU Foundation provides a single award of $10,000 annually to a full-time University of Colorado faculty member who has rendered exceptional educational, humanitarian, civic or other service in his or her community, external to the faculty member’s primary university responsibilities and for no additional remuneration.

Any CU employee or student may submit nominations. Each nomination packet must include:

  • a letter of nomination that speaks specifically to the award criteria as stated above;
  • two supporting letters from persons within the university community who have direct knowledge of the nature and benefit of the community service;
  • two supporting letters from people outside the university who have direct knowledge of the nature and benefit of the community service; and
  • a copy of the faculty nominee’s current curriculum vitae.

Additional information in support of the nomination and with relevance to the criteria may be included. Please submit your complete nomination packet to:
