UMBC recognizes excellence in teaching and research through the Presidential Teaching & Research Professor Awards. These awards are open only to tenured faculty members with well-established record of teaching and research. We currently do not have a formal means to recognize the accomplishments of junior faculty who are doing outstanding work to advance the mission of our university. UMBC also has a strong group of full-time lecturers, clinical faculty, research faculty, and adjunct faculty whose work is critical to our institutional success but often goes unnoticed. It is important for us to recognize the contributions of these individuals more explicitly.
The College of Natural and Mathematical Sciences is pleased to announce four new College-level awards that recognize faculty excellence at all stages in a person’s career and all aspects of the UMBC and College mission (please click on each award title for a full description of the award and terms for eligibility):
- Early Career Faculty Excellence Award
- Mid-Career Faculty Excellence Award
- Excellence in Teaching Award
- Adjunct Faculty Excellence Award
In addition to these four new awards, the Office of the Vice President for Research is coordinating the nomination process for the new research Faculty Excellence Award. Details on this award can be found under www.research.umbc.edu.
