ONE AWARD FOR TENURED/TENURE-TRACK/FIXED-TERM TRACK FACULTY
Purpose of Award
This award is to recognize, encourage and reward either an individual or a team of faculty who have significantly expanded UTSA’s involvement in the global arena. The distinguished faculty should have made contributions in one or more of the following areas: the development and implementation of international components into the curriculum; study-abroad programs; collaborations with foreign institutions.
Faculty nominated must have taught at least four consecutive long semesters (Fall-Spring) at UTSA. The awards are based on performance for the calendar year of the award. Priority will be given to candidates who have not previously won the award. Previous recipients of the President’s Distinguished Achievement Award for the Advancing Globalization will be eligible for nomination after seven years.
The selection committee will consider the following criteria in selecting winners:
- Significance of global-oriented activity (in terms of frequency, amount, scope)
- Degree to which nominee’s efforts have expanded UTSA’s globalization efforts and either enhanced the institution’s global visibility or broadened students’ awareness of global issues.
A selection committee composed of faculty will review nomination packets. The nomination packet for this award will consist of only the following, assembled into a single PDF file in the order indicated:
- Completed award nomination form
- Letter of support/nomination from a peer faculty colleague, department chair, or college leader
- Self-statement of advancement of globalization (not to exceed 2 pages). The statement should speak to:
- the nature and quality of involvement in the global arena
- how these efforts have expanded UTSA’s globalization efforts and either enhanced the institution’s global visibility or broadened students’ awareness of global issues
- CV of nominee
No additional materials should be submitted.
Each dean’s office should upload completed nomination packets by the deadline.
Previous recipients of the President's Distinguished Achievement Award for Advancing Globalization are ineligible for nomination for this award.
Each college may submit a maximum number of three nominees (1 Tenured, 1 Tenure-Track, 1 Fixed-Term Track).
