Harrison Faculty Award for Excellence in Engineering Education
The Harrison Faculty Award for Excellence in Engineering Education was established in 1982 by Doris A. and Stanley E. Harrison (B.S.E.E. '58). The recipient of this award will be honored at the annual College of Engineering Faculty Awards Banquet.
The award will be presented to a member of the College faculty in engineering or architecture who is in the early or mid-part of his or her career (within 15 years of receiving his/her Ph.D. or other terminal degree) and who has distinguished himself or herself through a contribution to the College of Engineering or society. Faculty members who received their Ph.D. or other terminal degree during or before 2004 are not eligible. The award will be based on excellence in teaching and the qualitative aspects of teaching; exceptional fundamental or applied research (either in scope or originality) in one or more areas of endeavor ordinarily carried out in the College of Engineering; or a single or unique contribution to engineering or architectural concepts, which is responsive to or has an impact on society as a whole. As a general rule, the award will be made to an individual (except under unique circumstances in any year that suggest a team should receive the award).
Nominations must be made by the department Chair or by his/her designee. The nomination packet consists of 1.) A letter of nomination, 2.) Pertinent supporting materials, 3.) No more than three letters of support, and 4.) The nominee’s curriculum vitae. Nomination letters should be brief and to the point, yet with sufficient information to permit a rational selection.
Reminder: The nomination letter must be two pages or less, and be on college or department letterhead. Include a proposed citation (25 words or less) at the bottom of the nomination letter. The committee may disqualify nominations that do not meet this requirement.
The Selection Committee will consist of the College of Engineering Honors and Awards Committee, the Dean of Engineering, one or more senior representatives from the faculty of the College of Engineering, one representative from the private sector and one undergraduate member of the engineering student body.
Final decision will be made by the Dean of the College of Engineering.
The application materials need to be submitted electronically and must be submitted by January 10, 2020.
