This award recognizes exemplary, ongoing contributions of OSU faculty and staff to the internationalization of the university by enhancing student, faculty, and staff awareness and participation in international education, research, and related activities. As further recognition, the award includes a plaque and $1,000.
The nominee must currently be a regular OSU staff or faculty member with at least a .5 FTE and a 9- to 12-month appointment. Emeritus, visiting, courtesy, and temporary faculty are not eligible.
Nominations will be evaluated on the basis of excellence demonstrated in the following areas:
Nominations shall include: (1) the completed nomination form; (2) the nominee’s professional resume; (3) position description indicating breakdown of FTE allocation; (4) the nominee’s position description; (5) evidence of the nominee’s successful international activities; and (6) three letters of support: two may be from clients or current or former colleagues, and at least one of which must be from a current or former student. Because the nominator completes the nomination form, the nominator is not eligible to submit a letter of support. The letters of support each shall not exceed three single-sided pages using at least 12 font and 1" margins. Please be certain that the nomination materials, particularly the letters of support, address the criteria. Signatures on the letters and supporting documents must be included.
The original copy of the nomination form must be submitted to the Faculty Senate Office upon submission of the electronic copy; paper clip the original only – do not staple nor place it in a folder or binder. The nomination packet for the successful recipient becomes the property of University Archives and will not be returned to the nominator.
