To recognize MU faculty who have provided outstanding leadership in strengthening MU’s international dimension.
Up to two individuals will be given the annual award which will include a $1,000 prize, less applicable taxes. In addition to being recognized at the campus-wide faculty awards dinner, the awardees will be invited to make presentations at the annual International Fellowship Recognition Evening.
The selected MU faculty members (full-time, tenured, non-tenured and non-tenure track), regardless of departmental affiliation, will have demonstrated outstanding leadership in international education by virtue of contributions, such as by having a creative role in developing a significant aspect of the international curriculum at MU, assuming a lead role in developing an active MU linkage with an international partner, serving on international advisory bodies or by collaboration with international colleagues in significant research and publications.
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 educational activity or activities that qualify the candidate for nomination (include a statement regarding the impact of the nominee’s activities).
- Supporting letters (limited to five) from MU colleagues and/or partners abroad
- 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: YearProvIntlEd_LastFirst (e.g., 2022ProvIntlEd_TigerTruman). Original hard copies of the proposal packet are no longer required.
