Outstanding Engagement Award

The Purpose of the Board on Human Sciences Outstanding Engagement Award is to recognize an individual who is a "campus based" or a "state level faculty member" for exceptional creativity and scholarship in the development, application, and evaluation of outreach, extension, and public service programs.   

Eligibility and Nominations

Eligibility for the Outstanding Engagement Award shall be limited to faculty members who have been employed in a BoHS member institution for at least three (3) years. The nominee must have at least 30 percent of their EFT/FTE dedicated to public service, outreach and/or extension programs (Administrative appointments in these areas do not qualify a nominee). Each college and university with active BoHS membership is eligible to nominate one person for this outreach award. Former recipients of the Outstanding Engagement Award are ineligible for this award. The award will be presented at the annual meeting of the Association of Public and Land-grant Universities in November. The award winner must be able to attend the meeting and speak to the organization. BOHS will provide travel expenses and appropriate recognition including an honorarium.

Procedure

Each college and university shall implement its own procedure for identifying qualified applicants. Following a review of potential candidates, each BoHS member institution will nominate only ONE candidate for the BoHS Outstanding Engagement Award.

The Nomination Dossier for this award shall be submitted electronically as a single PDF document that includes:

  1. a nomination letter detailing the candidate’s outstanding achievements and outcomes (impacts) in the areas of public service, extension and outreach presented in two pages or less;
  2. the nominee’s curriculum vita;
  3. a detailed account of the nominee's EFT /FTE allocation for the past three years showing that the faculty member has invested at least 30% of his/her appointment in community engagement related programs and/or projects (e.g., Extension programs, outreach projects, community-based service-learning, integrated grants, and community-based applied research/evaluation); and,
  4. up to three excerpts of relevant supporting materials. Examples of supporting materials include: journal articles, manuals, curricula, DVD’s and media, papers presented, books and others as deemed appropriate.
