Faculty: Nominate a colleague as a Glennan Fellow

All faculty members are invited to nominate a fellow faculty member as a candidate for a Glennan Fellowship for the 2012-13 year. Glennan Fellows are perceived as role models for new faculty at Case Western Reserve University, and the program is designed to identify and reward promising junior faculty and to facilitate their growth as teacher/scholars. Fellowships will be awarded based on evidence of promise for a balanced career in both teaching and scholarship and on the proposals that are submitted by the nominees.

Glennan Fellows must be regular faculty members who are in the tenure track but not yet tenured. Glennan Fellows must also be untenured during the year they hold their fellowships.

The nomination process consists of submitting a letter to UCITE. Any faculty colleague of the nominee may submit the letter, or it can be a self-nomination. Nomination letters must be no longer than a single page and must be signed by two faculty members other than the nominee. The signed nominating letter should be received by UCITE by March 2. Because the nomination letter will form part of the nominee’s file that is evaluated for the award, it should make a strong case as to why the nominator feels the nominee deserves the award. Once nominated, the nominee is then responsible for submitting a proposal to UCITE by March 23.
