The University of North Florida wishes to recognize faculty members who perform meritoriously in service to the University, the community, and their profession, with a special emphasis on service to the University. Outstanding Faculty Service Awards are made possible through unrestricted gifts to the University of North Florida Foundation. The University of North Florida has allocated the available funds for this fiscal year in the following manner:
The award winners will be determined in the Spring 2017 semester and each will receive an honorarium of $2,500, which will be distributed by electronic transfer, and a commemorative plaque. Awards will be presented at the Fall Convocation and electronic transfer made near that date. The award is funded by the UNF Foundation. The Foundation reserves the right to not provide the monetary award to any winner who is not a UNF employee at the time if the Fall convocation, when the award is made.
Any full time member of the University of North
Florida faculty who has seven years of full-time regular employment at the
University is eligible to be considered for an Outstanding Faculty Service
Award. Time served in visiting and adjunct positions does not count toward
eligibility. No winner of an Outstanding Faculty Service Award shall be
eligible to win another Outstanding Faculty Service Award until the *_*FIFTH year following the receipt of
the last award.
Any person within the University community (students, alumni, faculty, staff, or administration) may nominate a faculty member for the award. Nominations must be in writing and signed by the nominator, sent via email to firstname.lastname@example.org, or posted through the Faculty Association website at www.unf.edu/unffa. Written nominations are to be delivered, preferably by hand, to the Faculty Association office. The deadline for receipt of all nominations is Tuesday, January 16, 2018 at 5:00 p.m. It is the responsibility of the nominator to ensure that his/her nomination is delivered prior to the deadline. The nomination should consist simply of the statement, "I wish to nominate__________________, department of __________________, for the Outstanding Faculty Service Awards." An argument on behalf of, or a rationale for, the candidacy of the nominee is not needed. The Faculty Association President shall confirm the eligibility of each nominee and send a letter of confirmation of the nomination to each eligible nominee and his/her chair, after the close of nominations.
If you are nominated, please do not forward any application materials to the Faculty Association office until you receive a letter from the Faculty Association President confirming your eligibility as established by your College or unit.
The Selection Committee will choose the award winners through a secret ballot vote. The Committee shall make this choice solely on the basis of the nominees' merits and without consideration for other factors such as departmental affiliation, professional rank of present nominees, or past award winners.
The Committee does have the prerogative not to recommend two winners for the award if, in the members' judgments, the nominee pool does not contain two individuals whose accomplishments merit an Outstanding Faculty Service Award.
It will be the responsibility of the University Selection Committee chairperson to notify by letter any finalists who have not been selected after the committee has concluded its deliberations. The Chairperson of the University Selection Committee will also send a letter via the Faculty Association to the Office of Academic Affairs identifying the two (2) winners of the Outstanding Faculty Service Awards. Winners of the Outstanding Faculty Service Awards shall be notified by a letter signed jointly by the chairperson of the selection committee and President of the Faculty Association. Formal recognition of winners shall occur at the UNF Fall Convocation.
