Nominations and self-nominations are now being accepted for the 2013 Award for Excellence in Social Science Engaged Research, with a deadline of Jan. 18. The award is given annually to a faculty member in a selected academic field who has demonstrated excellence in research and scholarly activity related to civic engagement projects and programs.
This award is the result of a generous endowment from Robert Brunswig, Rebecca Brunswig, and Ken Coleman. A new award of $1,000 is offered each year to a faculty member who has demonstrated exemplary scholarship in engaged research and civic engagement.
Nominations are welcome for faculty members from one of the following UNC departments and academic programs: Anthropology, Africana Studies, Economics, Environmental Studies, Geography, Gerontology, Political Science, Recreation, Tourism and Hospitality, Social Science, Sociology, and Women's Studies. Eligible individuals must also be term or tenure track lecturers or assistant professors with M.A. or Ph.D. degrees (or both). The nominator must be a faculty member from one of the listed departments or programs. Self-nominations are welcome. The award recipient will be selected by a committee of social science faculty members.
