MUW FACULTY MEMBER OF THE YEAR 2018 NOMINATION FORMS AVAILABLE NOW! CLICK HERE to download the form.
Every year the MUW Alumni Association and the MUW Star and Scepter Chapter of Mortar Board conduct a campus-wide election to select MUW’s Faculty Member of the Year. This Award, which is announced at graduation and includes a $1000 dollar check from the Alumni Association, is highly coveted. It honors those faculty members who exhibit excellence in teaching, advising, and professional activities, in particular those who go beyond all expectations to support MUW’s students and academic programs. Only full-time tenured/tenure-track MUW faculty members are eligible and must be nominated by AT LEAST one other full-time tenured/tenure track faculty member AND AT LEAST three currently enrolled full-time students. Faculty who have received the award in the previous DECADE are not eligible, including Dr. Bryan Hilliard (2008), Dr. Bonnie Oppenheimer (2009), Dr. George Pinchuck (2010), Mr. Todd Bunnell (2011), Dr. Brian Anderson (2012), Ms. Janice Giallourakis (2013), Ms. Mary Jo Kirkpatrick (2014), Dr. Kim Whitehead (2015), Dr. Tammie McCoy (2016), and Dr. Erin Kempker (2017).
Nominations are NOW OPEN and will close at five p.m. on Tuesday, April 3rd, to allow time for an online ballot to be prepared and for a run-off election, if necessary.
