Faculty Award Application Information
National and international faculty awards are an important component of institutional reputation and are one of the four “phase I” AAU membership indicators. We want to ensure that MSU faculty, and the university as a whole, receive appropriate recognition. Thus, it is imperative that individual faculty, departments, and colleges are active in nominating members for appropriate awards and, where appropriate, inviting external support for MSU faculty candidates for such awards.
Academic Analytics maintains a list of faculty awards considered “prestigious” and “highly prestigious.”
For assistance with award applications, letters of support and more, please contact the one of the two Faculty Honorifics Coordinators listed below.
- Katie Rundblad (email@example.com) Faculty Honorifics Coordinator for non-medical colleges.
- Faith Peterson (firstname.lastname@example.org) Faculty Honorifics Coordinator for MSU Health Sciences colleges.
The Faculty Honorific Awards coordinators can provide access to the scholarly awards database of over 19,000 scholarly awards maintained by Academic Analytics.
This “Honorific Awards Analysis” helps identify nomination opportunities for many specific awards for under-recognized faculty at MSU, as well as identify faculty nationally who might serve as nominators or references.
For more information about this service, please contact your dean, department chair, or program director, or email Kyle Sweitzer in MSU Institutional Research.
