Faculty: Nominations for Glennan Fellowships open through Feb. 29

The University Center for Innovation in Teaching and Education (UCITE) invites faculty members to nominate fellow faculty members for the Glennan Fellowship for the 2016-2017 year.

The 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 teachers and 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 on the tenure track but not yet tenured and will not be the year they hold their fellowships.

Any faculty colleague of the nominee can submit a nomination letter to UCITE. Self-nominations also are accepted. The nomination letter must be no longer than a single page and must have three signatures in total (i.e., self-nomination letters must be co-signed by two faculty members other than the nominee). While co-signatures from senior faculty are suggested, they are not essential.

The letter of nomination will form an important part of the nominee’s file that is evaluated for the award. Hence the nominating letter should make a strong case as to why the nominators feel that the nominee deserves the award, such as by defining the qualities of the nominee that make him or her worthy of it and highlighting the evidence of excellence in scholarship and teaching.

The signed nominating letter should be received by UCITE by Monday, Feb. 29. Once nominated, the nominee is then responsible for submitting a proposal to UCITE by Monday, March 21.
