Beginning in the summer of 2021, the APLU Council on Research (COR) is initiating a slate of annual awards. For the inaugural year of the program, two awards will be presented. The COR Executive Committee is considering expanding this number in successive years, based on a broader slate recommended by the COR Awards and Recognitions Committee.
Nominations are due by 5pm EDT on April 23, 2021. The awards to be presented in 2021 are:
Research Response to a Community in Crisis Award, to recognize a university that has demonstrated flexibility and responsiveness by rapidly and effectively applying the university’s research expertise to meet community needs in a time of crisis.
