CAS Outstanding Faculty and Staff Awards

CAS Outstanding Faculty and Staff Awards are a way to recognize one faculty and one staff member at convocation. Each year, CAS Dean McNulty will work with an award committee, to set the focus of this award to reflect our current challenges, priorities, and goals. The nomination deadline is April 15th. Award winners will be announced at the CAS Convocation in August 2022. Awardees will receive $1,000.

This past year we all have had to adapt to the uncertainty around us. Therefore the focus for this year's awards will be on a CAS faculty member and CAS staff member that have risen above and beyond to help students fulfill their educational goals and modeled resiliency and innovation during this time of transformation.

Nominations should include:
  • How the nominee meets the above award criteria (in 600 words or less)
  • Letters of support from faculty, staff, and/or students (maximum of 3).
    • Faculty nominations: one letter of support must be from the nominee’s chair, associate dean, or director
