Faculty Excellence Awards

Contributed by Laurie Wasik on 02/05/2007 

The Faculty Development Committee is pleased to invite applications for an Excellence in Teaching Award, an Excellence in Scholarship Award, and an Excellence in Service Award.

We are extremely fortunate in offering three awards for this annual honor. Each award is $1,000 plus one-course released time. In order
to be eligible for these awards, a candidate must be a full-time faculty member who has completed at least one year of employment at Ithaca College and who will be full time during the 2007-2008 academic year.

Criteria: The foremost criterion for the Excellence in Teaching Award is the description of teaching excellence in the Ithaca College Policy Manual 2002-2003, Volume IV: Faculty Handbook (4.12.7.1). Four areas will be given particular attention: subject mastery; presentation; interaction with students; and dedication to teaching. The Excellence in Scholarship Award will recognize continued accomplishment in the broadest sense, that is, traditional research and publication in a discipline, as well as scholarly, professional, and creative activity (i.e., musical and artistic works; performances; film and other media; presentations at conferences; pedagogical scholarship) and other activity associated with disciplines at Ithaca College. Qualitative as well as quantitative measures of the achievements will be considered in the review of the candidate’s work (see Ithaca College Policy Manual 2002-2003, Volume IV: Faculty Handbook, 4.12.7.3ff). The Excellence in Service Award will recognize continued and exceptional accomplishment in service in the broadest sense, including service to the College community, the larger community, and/or the discipline. Qualitative as well as quantitative measures of the work will be considered in the review of the candidate’s nomination (see Ithaca College Policy Manual 2002-2003, Volume IV: Faculty Handbook, 4.12.7.4ff).

Nomination: Any faculty member from the college community may nominate an individual for any of the three awards. In addition, any student may nominate a faculty member for the Excellence in Teaching Award. It is the nominator’s responsibility to complete and submit the application, although a student nominator may request that this responsibility be given to a faculty member. Self-nominations are not eligible for any of the awards. Each nomination must contain the following:

Excellence in Teaching Award
• cover page
• curriculum vita
• letter of application by the nominee
• nominating letter
• two support letters from faculty colleagues. If the nominating letter has been written by a faculty colleague, the nominating letter would count as one of the two faculty support letters.
• two support letters from students. If the nominating letter has been written by a student, the nominating letter would count as one of the two student support letters.

Excellence in Scholarship Award
• cover page
• curriculum vita
• letter of application by the nominee
• nominating letter by a faculty colleague
• three support letters from faculty or professional colleagues, at least one from Ithaca College and at least one external

Excellence in Service Award
• cover page
• curriculum vita
• letter of application by the nominee
• nominating letter by a faculty colleague
• three support letters from faculty, professional/community colleagues, or students, at least one from Ithaca College

Each support letter, including nominating and application letters, must be no longer than two pages in length. There is no page limit for the curriculum vita. The application is limited to the materials listed. No additional materials will be considered.

Nominations for all three categories will be reviewed by the Faculty Development Committee and previous award recipients. Reviewers are ineligible for these awards and may neither nominate nor write in support of a candidate. The three awardees will be recognized at the annual luncheon for recipients of faculty development awards held in May and at Convocation.

Applications are available in the deans’ offices. The application with supporting materials must be submitted to Stephen Sweet, Chair, Faculty Development Committee, Department of Sociology, 107 Muller Faculty Center, 274-3910, ssweet@ithaca.edu by Friday, March 23, 2007.
