Excellence in Research & Creative Activity Award
The award is to recognize,
encourage, and stimulate excellence in research and creative activity at UW-Parkside.
Administration of Award
Candidates for an annual award
for research and creative activity shall be reviewed by the Committee for Research
and Creative Activity (CRCA) assisted by the two most recent recipients of the
award. The committee's role is to choose and recommend one candidate to the chancellor.
(In case of joint research projects, up to three candidates may share the award.)
Members of CRCA and recipients of the UW-System Distinguished Professorship Award
exclude themselves from consideration for this award.
(a) Nominations should
be submitted through department chairs, but may come from any faculty member
familiar with the candidates work. The letter should include or be accompanied
by a narrative statement explaining the candidate's research agenda or focus
and its results for readers outside the candidate's field.
(b) Candidates files will be kept active for three years unless candidates
request otherwise, so that candidates who do not receive the award this year
will not have to be renominated next year, though the committee may request
an updated vita.
(c) Nominations of previous award recipients will be considered if the previous award was
made 10 or more years ago. Repeat awards will be judged based on the strength of a accomplishment since the first award.
Materials to be Submitted
The CRCA office (MOLN D135)
should be sent nine(9) copies of the letter of nomination, the candidate's curriculum
vitae, and any appropriate supporting materials, such as published evidence that
the candidate's work has influenced or been used by others in his/her field, such
as book reviews, critics' reviews, articles by others about or drawing on the
work, or citation index statistics. The committee does not ask for letters from
colleagues or outside reviewers as part of this submission. Where appropriate,
the committee appreciates receiving material regarding sources in which the candidate's
work appears, such as rejection rates of journals and similar supporting documentation.
CRCA members and the two most
recent award recipients will review the candidates. If needed, the committee shall
seek external evaluation.
(c) Impact on field.
(d) Continuing productivity.
(e) Contribution to overall
research environment at UW-Parkside.
The recipient will be announced
at the fall convocation.
