The College of Fine Arts at the University of Utah is dedicated to supporting a diverse and dynamic learning community that fosters continuous growth and development in teaching, research and service for all faculty members (tenure-line, career-line, adjunct and visiting).
To recognize significant contributions to the College of Fine Arts, two faculty members will be chosen to receive the 2013-14 College of Fine Arts Faculty Excellence Awards. These awards recognize outstanding distinction in one of two areas: Teaching or Research. Criteria leading to a nomination may include innovative pedagogy, exemplary contributions to the educational process inside and outside the classroom, integration of student involvement with research opportunities, or excellence in creative or scholarly research.
Nominations for these awards are now being accepted on behalf of faculty with at least 5 years of teaching service at the University of Utah. Tenured, tenure-track, and auxiliary faculty at or above .75 FTE are eligible. Recipients of other University-wide teaching awards must wait 5 years prior to being eligible for consideration for the College awards.
Each award includes a $500 honorarium, and recipients of the CFA Faculty Excellence Awards will be honored at the College of Fine Arts Awards Banquet on October 2, 2013.
