How to Nominate Faculty

The Graduate School of Arts and Sciences and the School of Engineering invite you to nominate faculty for the Faculty Teaching and Mentoring Award, which recognizes the important and valuable contributions our faculty make to graduate education. Each school recognizes one faculty member who has demonstrated outstanding support of a graduate student (or graduate students) from course completion through research and post-degree placement.

We encourage you to solicit nominations for the Faculty Teaching and Mentoring award from graduate students and from faculty in your departments. Each graduate program is invited to nominate one individual for the award. The nomination should include a letter of nomination from the chair and/or graduate director of the program, and three letters of support from students (current and former) who have direct knowledge of the nominee’s mentoring and/or teaching. Please send your nomination and supporting materials, in one email with attachments, to Angela Foss at angela.foss@tufts.edu by Wednesday, March 1, 2017.
