RE:         Selected Awards Nominations for 2018-2019

Oregon State University honors outstanding contributions and performance through several major awards. OSU has a highly qualified faculty, and we depend upon you to facilitate nominations for these awards.

All nomination materials for the below awards must be submitted no later than March 11, 2019 to: Faculty Recognition and Awards Committee, c/o OSU Faculty Senate Office, 107 Gilkey Hall, Corvallis OR 97331-6203.

When completing nominations, please remember the quality of supporting materials is very important. Please select supportive materials carefully. Letters should address the specific criteria for each award. When a candidate is nominated for two awards, a complete set of supportive materials must be submitted which specifically address the criteria for each award. Nominators are urged to make sure the supportive materials clearly indicate that the candidate fulfills the exact requirements for EACH award specified. See the Guidelines for Faculty Senate Award Nomination Packets at for suggestions on developing an effective nomination packet. Do not place original nominations in folders or binders and please do not staple; you may either paperclip the nomination packet or use a rubber band. Both the online nomination materials as well as the hard copy of the original materials must be submitted by 5:00 PM on March 11. If you have questions or need assistance with awards selected by the Faculty Recognition and Awards Committee, please contact me at 541-737-6268 or

Nominations for other awards presented at University Day are also being solicited by a variety of different groups or offices. Specific information for each award, including eligibility and nomination deadline, can be found on the Awards Summary Table at
