Nominee Eligibility 1. A nominee must have completed 5 full years of service to the University by January 1, 2022. For teaching and research awards, the service need not be continuous so long as the nominee has been employed above the level of graduate student for a total of 5 years, and, for teaching awards only, so long as the person was budgeted at least part-time to teach for a total of 5 years. 2. Nominees must not have received a University-level Distinguished Achievement Award in the same category during the previous 10 years. However, 5 years after receiving an award, a person may be nominated for an award in a different category. 3. An individual may be nominated in two different award categories in the same year; however, the college/unit must count that person twice in its allotted nominations (as outlined by the chart on page 9).

Each college/area has its own coordinator who assists with the nomination process and the production of nomination packages. The names of the coordinators are listed in the Appendix I. Please contact those individuals with questions relating to nominations in a particular college or area. For general questions regarding these guidelines, you may contact the Office of the Dean of Faculties at (979) 845-4274 or Please see this link for the guidelines:
