All nominations for these awards are due by Wednesday, March 31. Winners will be honored with recognition by the Writing Program and a monetary award.
Members of the community can nominate faculty members for the following awards. Contact Martha Schaffer at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
The Jessica Melton Perry Award for Distinguished Teaching in Disciplinary & Professional Writing
This award recognizes teaching that has contributed to the development of student writing within academic and professional fields across the university (other than English). Nominees can be tenure-track or non-tenure track regular faculty members currently employed in any school or college of CWRU. This award is designed to recognize instructors who have helped their students publish academic/scholarly work, instructors/mentors of graduate/professional students, and/or instructors of SAGES Departmental Seminars and Senior Capstones (where discipline-specific writing is taught).
The SAGES Excellence in Writing Instruction Award
This award is given annually to an instructor in the SAGES program who has demonstrated outstanding commitment to and success in teaching academic writing to CWRU undergraduates. Nominees may be at any rank, from graduate student writing instructor through tenured full professor, but they must have provided substantial writing instruction as part of one or more SAGES seminars during the previous or current academic year.
This award is designed to recognize faculty working in SAGES First and/or University Seminars. Nominate yourself, a colleague or a teacher for the SAGES Excellence in Writing Instruction Award.
The SAGES Excellence in Consulting Award
This award will be given annually to one Writing Resource Center consultant currently working in the center. It recognizes an individual who provides outstanding writing instruction to students of the university and service to the center during the academic year.
