Academic Outreach and Engagement Council Awards

The Academic Outreach and Engagement Council seeks to reward and recognize faculty members who demonstrate excellence in academic outreach and engaged scholarship. Each year the Council nominates one faculty member for the Chancellor’s Academic Outreach Award and provides three scholarships for faculty to attend the international Engagement Scholarship Consortium conference.

The Chancellor’s Academic Outreach Award

This is an internal award. Each year the Council nominates one faculty member for the Chancellor’s Academic Outreach Award.  This  award is presented to a faculty member who employs their academic expertise to engage the community in reciprocal, collaborative relationships that: a) improve the quality of life for citizens and, b) inform the scholarship and learning of faculty and students.

Nomination Deadline: February of each year
