To provide special recognition to faculty members who have made outstanding contributions to the extension and continuing education efforts of the campus.
The award is in the amount of $1,000, less applicable taxes.
Open to all faculty (full-time, tenured, non-tenured, and non-tenure track) with five or more years at MU. Preference will be given to those who have major extension and/or continuing education responsibilities as reflected by a current, at least 25 percent FTE, extension appointment. Individuals with service dates prior to Sept. 1, 2016, will be considered to have more than five years of service and are eligible to receive this award.
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 extension and continuing education activity or activities that qualifies the candidate for nomination (i.e. projects, presentations, sustained administrative and delivery efforts, special honors and awards, publications or other comparable creative activity). Include a statement of the impact of the candidate’s activities.
- Supporting letters (limited to five) from clientele served, colleagues, students and peers.
- Nominee’s curriculum vitae (or resume).
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: YearFancher_LastFirst (e.g., 2022Fancher_TigerTruman). Original hard copies of the proposal packet are no longer required.
