Project Team Award — Faculty and/or staff
The purpose of this award is to recognize significant accomplishments in one or more of the primary mission areas of the College (research, teaching and extension/outreach) realized through the collaborative efforts of faculty and/or staff members in the College of Agriculture.
The project team must involve at least one College of Agriculture faculty or staff member and the team must have at least three members. Team members may be faculty, staff or professionals in other units at Auburn University or at other institutions. However, leadership for the team must be demonstrated by a College of Agriculture faculty or staff member.
Criteria for Evaluation
The overriding factor in evaluating the nominated teams is the impact a team or project has had in the College, the University, or in the community, in areas of research, teaching, and/or extension/outreach. Projects involving one or more of the primary mission areas for the college (research, teaching and extension/outreach) are eligible for consideration for this award. Integrated projects involving at least two of the mission areas and/or projects involving interdisciplinary or multidisciplinary teams will be favorably considered. Extramural funding is not a requirement, but will most likely expand the scope and impact of the project.
Nominations will be reviewed by the committee that reviews the nominations for the Dean’s Research Award.
Each member of the team will receive a plaque recognizing this accomplishment.
Presentation of Award
The team members will be recognized at the annual College of Agriculture award program.
Nominations may be made by any faculty or staff member in the College of Agriculture and may include self-nominations. The nomination should include the following:
- A letter of nomination which summarizes the impact the team or project has had in the College, the University, or in the community, in areas of research, teaching, and/or extension/outreach.
- A list of the team members and their institutional affiliation and a brief biographical description of each team member.
