The Dean’s Exemplar Faculty Award is a two-year award that aims to recognize and reward tenured faculty who are exemplar contributors to the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering. More specifically, this award recognizes those with outstanding accomplishments and contributions in all three faculty performance areas of research, teaching and service. The award nominations will be made by the School Directors, with consideration of the most recent annual faculty performance assessment data. Nominations will be reviewed by the Fulton Schools Executive Committee, and recommendations made to the Dean.
To be nominated, a faculty member must have:
A record showing dedicated and quality student instruction at both the undergraduate and graduate level, and at instructional loads consistent with Fulton Schools workload expectations.
Substantial success with graduate student mentoring, with an emphasis on completion of doctoral students, and at a level expected of Fulton Schools faculty (e.g., 4+ doctoral students supported with external funding and graduation of one student about every 1 to 1.5 years on average).
Substantial output from research and/or entrepreneurial activities.
Sustained success at attracting external resources needed to support a research and/or entrepreneurial program of the scale expected in the Fulton Schools.
A history of positive interactions and collaborations with other faculty.
Service activities that indicate a record of leadership roles with their school, Fulton Schools, and/or ASU.
Directors may nominate up to 10 percent of their tenured faculty. The nominations must provide evidence that the faculty meet the criteria above and discuss why they deserve to be recognized as a Fulton Exemplar Faculty. A faculty member can be selected for a Dean’s Exemplar Faculty Award once every three years.
