Faculty Achievement Award in Professional and Community Service-OLD


The College of Arts and Sciences Faculty Achievement Award in Professional and Community Service is one of four Faculty Achievement Awards.

Award information

This award is based on:

  • An accumulated record of achievement, rather than a single service project or event (except in rare occasions).
  • Evidence of the beneficial impact of the recipient's work on the effectiveness of the University, a community organization or professional association. If the award is substantially based on community service, nominators should address the impact of the nominee's work on university/community relations.
  • Outstanding service, including service to the University, community and professional organizations.
  • Work primarily done while at WMU.

All awards are subject to final budgetary approval and authorization by the dean of the College.

Note: Faculty who have received a Faculty Achievement Award are not eligible to receive a subsequent award in the same category within five years.


Nomination form

In addition to the nomination form, nominations must also include:

  • Detailed descriptions of up to three service accomplishments while a faculty member at WMU
  • Statement by the nominator
  • Two sponsoring letters addressing the selection criteria for this award
  • Up-to-date C.V.


Jan. 21

This award will be offered for the deadline listed as long as funds are available.
