Nominations sought for DeFleur Academic PrizeTweet
The Lois B. DeFleur Academic Prize is given to a faculty member or a group of faculty for an achievement that increases Binghamton University’s reputation for excellence, innovation and collaborative endeavors. Achievements in teaching, scholarship and public service are all eligible for the prize. These achievements should rise above our general expectations for a high level of faculty performance. Faculty members at any stage of their career are eligible.
The $10,000 prize is awarded annually for a specific contribution, as opposed to a career of accomplishments, distinguishing the criteria for this prize from those used in tenure and promotion decisions. To qualify, the contribution must not only be recognized on campus, but it must also have received acclaim beyond the campus from peers or an organization. Nominations should include a description of the achievement and its demonstrable recognition. These flexible funds are intended to enhance the awardees’ teaching, research and/or service activities and, thereby, further the University’s mission.
While nominations may be submitted at any time, the final deadline for nominations for this academic year is March 15, 2013. Submit nominations to Michael F. McGoff, vice provost for strategic and fiscal planning, Office of the Provost.
