Stage 3. Department Action
As soon as the nominations are received, a process should be initiated to collect and organize support data in the form of an electronic dossier. The nominee(s) may participate in this process. Students shall be part of this process also. To be eligible, a nominee must be in at least the seventh year of full-time teaching at the University of Cincinnati as a (non-administrative) faculty member.
The candidate should be involved in any way he or she deems necessary, such as selecting the college or departmental Committee when used, supplying an updated vita, a list of students with whom the candidate has interacted, and course evaluations in the candidate's possession.
A nominee may be a candidate for only one award. If a person is nominated for both, he/she must choose which award for which he/she wishes to be considered.
