The Thomas Ehrlich Civically Engaged Faculty Award recognizes one senior faculty member (post-tenure or middle-to-late career at institutions without tenure) each year. Honorees (who must be affiliated with a Campus Compact member institution) are recognized for exemplary engaged scholarship, including leadership in advancing students’ civic learning, conducting community-based research, fostering reciprocal community partnerships, building institutional commitments to service-learning and civic engagement, and other means of enhancing higher education’s contributions to the public good. The award — previously known as the Thomas Ehrlich Faculty Award for Service-Learning — is named in honor of Thomas Ehrlich, former chair of the Campus Compact board of directors and president emeritus of Indiana University.
The award winner will be granted $2,000 and the opportunity to conduct a session at the Association of American Colleges and Universities (AAC&U) Annual Conference 2013. Four finalists will also be featured in a panel presentation at the conference.
The recipient will be announced on May 18, 2012 on www.compact.org, the Campus Compact website. Nominations will be accepted from colleagues, community partners, college presidents, provosts, or through self-nomination.
IMPORTANT SUBMISSION NOTE:
Only electronic nominations and supporting documents will be accepted. No items will be accepted via fax or mail. These documents can be uploaded as a plain Word Document (.doc), Rich Text Format (.rtf), or as a PDF (Portable Document Format).
