2012-13 Faculty Excellence Awards
Please consider providing a nomination for one of our outstanding faculty members for a 2012-13 Faculty Excellence Award.
These awards honor those who provide excellent education for our students: The scholar/teacher/mentor combination that makes MSU Billings a wonderful place.
The nominating process is relatively easy. You can do a detailed letter about the work of a favorite faculty member or you can simply send an e-mail with the name and qualifications of a faculty member you think may be worthy. College students, faculty, administration, alumni, or other members of the university community having direct knowledge of the nominee’s work may initiate nominations.
The process is not as detailed as in years past and there are fewer long narratives or forms needed. In an effort to go green, you are encouraged to submit forms electronically in PDF format.
ALL NOMINATIONS ARE DUE AT 5 P.M. FRIDAY, DEC. 14 TO THE OFFICE OF GRADUATE STUDIES or via e-mail to Jackie Christiansen at firstname.lastname@example.org.
