Faculty of Arts Excellence in Research Award

Faculty of Arts

The Faculty of Arts Faculty Excellence in Research Award recognizes a singular achievement in research or a creative activity during the past academic year (September 2016 to August 2017): a book, an article, a paper, a poem, play, etc.  There will normally be one award for probationary or term appointments, and another for tenured or continuing appointments.


Nominations must be no longer than 500 words, and illustrate why the nominated work represents a singular achievement. Self-nominations are not accepted.

Deadline: Monday March 5. Please send nominations to and copy Barbara Foucault (


Faculty may be nominated by students, staff or faculty, but not by the nominee.

Once nominated, nominees should submit a brief CV (of no more than 5 pages), representing their research portfolio for the last 6 years. Although the award is to be based on a single achievement, the CV will provide the award committee with a context to help with decision making.

Nominees should also submit a copy of the work in question – or represent it in some way (ie., a play bill, if it was a play in production).
