Developing a faculty-focused awards and recognition strategy provides Faculty Affairs the opportunity to position Texas A&M faculty for success and communicate their impact well beyond campus. Establishing a dynamic set of resources to support award achievement will make a tangible impact on faculty retention and engagement rates, inspire increased faculty recognition within their disciplines and encourage faculty to seek more prominent roles as thought-leaders within their areas of expertise.

Faculty Affairs helps faculty:

  1. Identify awards for which they are competitive.
  2. Develop individual application/nomination processes and build award plans across each faculty member's career.
  3. Identify mentors inside and outside of Texas A&M University to guide faculty as they prepare nomination materials.

Why It's Important

Attaining external awards and recognitions provide faculty the exposure, access, resources and network necessary to help amplify their scholarly work for the broadest impact.

  • Visibility - External awards and recognitions increase your visibility and provide wider recognition for your work among colleagues, peers and others.
  • Learning Opportunities - External recognitions offer recipients new and expanded learning opportunities - residencies, travel and cross-disciplinary collaboration.
  • Resources - Along with the achievement of external awards come valuable faculty resources - funding, time and access to prestigious memberships.
  • Collaboration - Nationally and internationally establishing oneself within an area of expertise presents faculty with exciting collaborative opportunities and an expanded community of scholars.
