Research Excellence award nominations sought

Each year UFV recognizes individual research excellence through its Research Excellence award. Those eligible for nomination include all UFV B faculty who have completed their probationary period or sessional instructors who have a cumulative equivalent of two years teaching time at UFV.

Selection criteria include innovation, academic impact, mentorship, and interface of teaching and research. Emphasis will be placed on work accomplished as a member of the UFV community but may include additional achievements within the past five years.
