The College of Arts and Sciences annually presents a Meritorious Faculty Award to
recognize exceptional faculty within the College. The Dean of the College invites
nominations by notification to the chairs and members of the faculty.
The nominations for this award can be made by any full-time, tenure-track faculty
member in the College of Arts and Sciences. Nominees must be tenured full professors
with a minimum of ten years of experience in the College. Nominees will be judged
on their contributions to The University of Memphis through the three categories of
teaching, scholarship, and service.
A maximum of three awards may be given annually.
Recipients of the Meritorious Faculty Award will be honored publicly with a plaque
and will receive a monetary award in the form of a supplement to their base salary.
A faculty member may receive this recognition only once. Nominations must be received
in the Dean's office by April 15 every year.
