To submit awards for inclusion in the next roundup, please complete this form and be sure to select the "Share an award recipient and corresponding award information" drop-down option. The next roundup will be published on our website in early April 2023 and will include awards received and/or announced in January, February, and March 2023. 

Submission criteria: The CFANS awards roundup is intended for announcements/awards heavily focused on the recognition of current faculty, staff and students. In general, the awards featured are of major significance and/or given by a widely-known entity (not specific to groups known best by those in a single field). Individuals who are featured usually include faculty, dean designation or above, executive administration, or an administrative appointment that touches all departments/units in its function—for example, a director of equity and diversity. This general rule applies to student honorees as well. The awards roundup will be featured on the CFANS website and shared in our internal Purpose newsletter once per quarter. Our team will let you know whether or not your submission will be included. No photos necessary.
