The University of North Florida wishes to recognize faculty who perform meritoriously in graduate teaching. To that end, the University has approved establishment of the University of North Florida Outstanding Graduate Teaching Awards. These awards are to be given annually in recognition of excellence in graduate teaching during the previous two academic years. The University of North Florida has allocated the available funds for this fiscal year in the following manner:
NOMINATIONS MUST BE RECEIVED NO LATER
Any full-time member of the UNF teaching faculty, who has held an in-rank faculty appointment and has been designated as graduate faculty for the previous two academic years at UNF, and who has taught at least three (3) graduate courses/sections during that time, including summer, is eligible to be nominated for this award. Visiting and adjunct faculty are not considered regular teaching faculty, and as such, are not eligible. No winner of an Outstanding Graduate Teaching Award shall be eligible to win another Outstanding Graduate Teaching Awards until the *__* FIFTH year following receipt of the last award.
Each of the Colleges shall elect a College Screening Committee to screen nominees and name finalists for the Outstanding Graduate Teaching Award. Only regular teaching faculty designated as Graduate Faculty who are not nominees for this award will be eligible to serve on this Committee. If colleges do not conform to this guideline, their nominees will not be considered further. The College Committee shall screen the nominations of those who have been declared to be eligible. In the event a nominee is not affiliated with one of the Colleges, the faculty member should submit his or her materials to the College in which his or her discipline would normally reside.
The College Committee shall name no more than three (3) finalists for the Outstanding Graduate Teaching Award. By Thursday, January 11, 2018 at 5 PM, the name of the College Finalists shall be returned to the President of the Faculty Association, who will deliver the materials of the College Finalists to the Chairperson of the University Selection Committee. In addition, the President of the Faculty Association shall notify those nominees who were not selected.
The University Selection Committee will be composed of the President of the Faculty Association, the Chairperson of the Faculty Affairs Committee, the President of the Graduate Student Organization, and one representative from each College to be elected by the faculty of the College from the ranks of graduate faculty who have received university Undergraduate or Graduate teaching awards in previous years. No person who is a nominee for the Outstanding Graduate Teaching Award or who is related to any nominee, may serve on this committee; in such cases, the constituency such a person represents shall elect a substitute representative. The President of the Faculty Association shall convene the University Selection Committee prior to the end of February for the purposes of electing a chairperson and beginning the final selection process.
