To recognize faculty with a current (at least 25 percent) extension assignment who have made exceptional accomplishments in their first four years of service to MU (Year one: Fall 2016, Spring 2017, Summer 2017 through year four: Fall 2019, Spring 2019, Summer 2020) in the field of extension or continuing education. Individuals with service dates prior to Sept. 1, 2016, will be considered to have more than four years of service and are ineligible to receive this award.
The award is in the amount of $1,000, less applicable taxes.
Faculty colleagues, departments, schools/colleges, or recognized campus organizations may nominate individuals.
Do not place nomination materials in a hard binder. The length of the nomination materials is not of primary importance because the final choice will be based on convincing evidence. Nomination materials will not be returned; therefore, the department chair should retain a copy of nomination materials for possible future use. Unsuccessful nominations may be updated and resubmitted in successive years.
Nomination materials should include:
- Nomination/Cover Letter
- Describe the impact of the nominee’s extension and continuing education activity or activities that qualify the candidate for nomination.
- Supporting letters (limited to five) from clientele served, colleagues, students and peers
- Nominee’s curriculum vitae
Annual Deadline: March 1 (due the following business day when falls on a weekend or holiday)
Nominations and supporting materials must be submitted by the Divisional Dean, who may establish an earlier deadline. Submit an electronic version as a single PDF attachment via email to MUProvostAwards@missouri.edu. Name the file as follows: YearProvExtnProg_LastFirst (e.g., 2022ProvExtnProgyler_TigerTruman). Original hard copies of the proposal packet are no longer required.
