The CCAS Dean's Office is pleased to continue our CCAS Dean’s Research Excellence Award for Mentoring (DREAM) program. This award is to recognize the contributions of our faculty who provide research mentoring for their colleague(s). CCAS full time faculty (including tenured, tenure track, contract, or research faculty) are eligible for the competition. An honorarium of $1,000 will be awarded to the top recipient of award.
Brief information on nominations should be entered on our Nomination Form for DREAM as soon as possible, but no later than April 22, 2019. Full packages should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org in one PDF file by April 22, 2019 with the following materials:
- Cover letter from the nominator, who should be a regular faculty (tenured, tenure track, or contract faculty member) in CCAS.
- Letter of support from a faculty mentee.
- Statement of nominee's mentoring activities and its impact in recent years.
- Biosketch for the nominee, up to three pages.
The applications will be reviewed by the CCAS Research Advisory Committee, which consists of three faculty members from each division: Arts and Humanities, Social and Behavioral Sciences, and Natural and Mathematical Sciences. If a current CCAS Research Advisory Committee member is a nominee, a faculty member from that division will be selected as a replacement by the Associate Dean for Research in consultation with the Dean. The committee will review all application packages and make recommendations to the Dean who will make the final decision.
Notification of Decisions
The Dean will notify nominees of his decision in May 2019. An award ceremony will be held during the CCAS Faculty Celebration event towards the end of semester.
