UCF WOMEN OF DISTINCTION AWARD APPLICATION 2017 Category: Excellence in Mentoring

The UCF Center for Success of Women Faculty is pleased to announce the fifth year of the Women of Distinction awards to highlight the achievements of outstanding women faculty at UCF. Three awards will be given in this year for “Excellence in Mentoring,” broadly defined. To celebrate excellence in mentoring at all stages of our careers, we would like to recognize a colleague with up to 5 years of service as a faculty member, a colleague with 6 – 10 years of service as a faculty member, and a colleague with more than 10 years of service as a faculty member.

Women faculty must be full-time UCF employees (faculty appointment types include full professors, associate professors, assistant professors, clinical faculty, research faculty, assistant lecturers, associate lecturers, assistant instructors, associate instructors, all librarian ranks, senior instructional designer, assistant instructional designer, and associate instructional designer) who are excellent mentors of their colleagues, students, and/or community partners are eligible to apply. While the mentors should be women faculty, mentees can be male and female. Self-nominations are encouraged. Winners will be announced at the President’s Welcome Reception for Women Faculty at the start of the fall 2017 semester. The winners will each receive a professional development stipend to be used for professional travel, research development and academic materials in the amount $1000 (provided by President Hitt to the winner’s department that must be spent prior to mid-June 2018), and recognition on the UCF Center for Success of Women Faculty website at http://womenfaculty.afia.ucf.edu/
