This annual, systemwide award recognizes one faculty member or one academic professional and administrative employee for exemplary community-engaged scholarship in his or her field of inquiry.
Each college on the Twin Cities campus and the campuses of Crookston, Duluth, Morris, and Rochester may select one individual to serve as a finalist for the award. All finalists become eligible for the University-wide award, which includes a one-time $15,000 prize. All finalists will be recognized at an awards luncheon on April 3, 2015 at which time the winner will be announced.
The award is co-sponsored by Office for Public Engagement and the Office of Vice Provost for Faculty and Academic Affairs.
