COR Awards

Beginning in the Spring of 2022, the APLU Council on Research (COR) is initiating a slate of three awards. 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.

The awards to be presented in 2022 are:

Award for Advancing Diversity and Inclusion in University Research

This award is intended to recognize a university’s Office of Research that has implemented one or more novel approaches for improving the diversity and inclusivity of the research enterprise at the institution, and thereby the research workforce pipeline.
