H. Dean Propst Award



The award is presented each year to a faculty member who has been outstanding in teaching and learning, advisement, counseling, and the encouragement and support of student involvement in academic and co-curricular activities (e.g., research, scholarship, creative works, student organizations, mentoring, and student leadership activities).

Nomination & Selection Process

Nominations, limited to full-time faculty, will originate with department heads and will be forwarded to the appropriate dean. Student and faculty input will be solicited in this process. By the end of Spring semester, the deans of each of the four schools/colleges (Science & Technology, Education, Health Professions, and Liberal Arts), as well as the Vice President for Student Affairs, will each name up to two nominees. With the exception of the Graduate School, the nominees should come from faculty within the respective colleges. Because of the mission of the Graduate School, nominees may come from any of the three colleges or one school. Deans are encouraged to involve faculty and students in the selection of their nominees. After the beginning of Fall semester, the awards committee of the student senate will gather information about the nominees. Using a uniform presentation process, each of the nominees will be presented to the senate and executive officers by a student. The senate and officers will vote by secret ballot, with a simple majority deciding the winner. Votes will be tallied by the President of the Senate, the Secretary of SGA, and the Advisor to SGA.

The deadline for submitting nominations for the H. Dean Propst Award is March 23, 2015.
