Suggested Modifications to the Criteria for Regents Award for Faculty Excellence

Calendar Item: 
1387
Docket Number: 
1274
First Name: 
Tim
Last Name: 
Kidd
Facts: 

In the past two years, some questions have come up from the committee convened to examine nominations for the Regents Award for Faculty Excellence.
1. Should the college senates, who are asked to obtain nominations, also be asked to judge the candidates in any way?

2. Should the candidates nominally hold the rank of full professor?

3. In addition, should teaching evaluations be required?

Action: 

Therefore, be it resolved for the university senate to do the following:
1. Decide whether further discussions should be held by an ad hoc committee with college senates concerning whether they should provide some assessment of the candidates in addition to securing nominations?
2. Accept the proposed changes to the criteria of the Regents Award for Faculty Excellence, which includes a provision stating that full professor status is preferred but not mandatory for receipt of the award and teaching evaluations are not required.
3. Accept the minor editorial revisions.

Regents approval. In order to meet the annual schedule of those external committees, which follows that of the curricular process, all proposals that require Board approval must be approved by Faculty Senate at the beginning of the Fall semester.
