The Office of Academic Affairs is accepting nominations for the annual Faculty Community Service Award, which is sponsored by an endowment from the Chase Corp. through the CU Foundation.
The endowment provides a $10,000 award annually to a full-time University of Colorado faculty member who has provided exceptional educational, humanitarian, civic or other service in the community in addition to his or her university responsibilities and for no additional remuneration.
Any university employee or student may submit a nomination. Each nomination packet must include:
- a letter of nomination that speaks specifically to the award criteria stated above;
- two supporting letters from people 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 relevant to the criteria in support of the nomination may be included.
Submit your complete electronic nomination packet as a single PDF to AcademicAffairs@cu.edu.
A systemwide advisory committee will review the nominations and submit its recommendation to President Bruce D. Benson.
Previous winners are not eligible to apply.
Nominations must be received by March 1.
