The Distinguished Research Award, made possible by a generous gift from Lettie Judkins McNeill, is given to any full time, regularly appointed (tenured or tenure-track) faculty member who publishes, presents, or displays within the past three years a research project, publication, or work of art deemed to be of high professional quality by standards of peers within the appropriate discipline. Nominations may be made by the individual or any member of the Simpson College campus community and should include appropriate supporting material (e.g. published reviews, information on publisher, newspaper articles, etc.) and reference a specific work. Nominations should focus on the criteria listed below.
A designated committee (consisting of the past three recipients) reviews the nominations. Should a member of the selection committee be nominated, another former recipient will be asked by the dean to serve on the committee. The criteria used by the committee to determine the winner is whether or not the research:
- contributed to the discipline of the recipient;
- made a significant contribution to conversation within the discipline by peers within and outside Simpson College;
- acknowledged impact on the scholarship/knowledge/holdings of the discipline;
Nominations for this award are due in the Office of Academic Affairs by March 19, 2018. The award is given at the spring Honors Convocation.
