Faculty and staff are at the front lines of student interaction and we rely on your student referrals to connect with prospective applicants.

Serve on a Nominating Committee

Most awards require institutional endorsement or nomination. We are always seeking faculty expertise to review and select campus candidates as a part of our campus nominating committees. As a reviewer, you will serve on one or more relevant committees, review applicant materials, provide feedback (where allowed), and provide notes to assist in drafting the nomination or endorsement letter. Committee members also often participate in mock interview panels to prepare applicants who advance in a competition.
