Faculty Achievement Award in Global Engagement

The College of Arts and Sciences Strategic Plan calls for creating awards to recognize faculty contributions to the themes and commitments in the plan, including contributions of the faculty to the disciplinary and interdisciplinary goals of the college regarding global engagement. The Faculty Achievement Award in Global Engagement is one of four Faculty Achievement Awards

Award selection

The award will be based on an exemplary commitment to global engagement and internationalization, as expressed through research and creative activity; teaching, mentoring, or curriculum transformation; professional service; or a combination of achievements in these areas.

  • A substantial part of the achievement shall have been accomplished as a faculty member at Western Michigan University
  • The award will be based on an exemplary commitment to global engagement and internationalization, as expressed through research and creative activity; teaching, mentoring, or curriculum transformation; professional service; or a combination of achievements in these areas
  • The award will usually be based on an accumulated record of achievement in global engagement, rather than a single project or event
  • There should be evidence of wide recognition by the academic, professional or artistic community beyond Western Michigan University

All awards are subject to final budgetary approval and authorization by the dean of the College. 

Note: Faculty who have received a Faculty Achievement Award are not eligible to receive a subsequent award in the same category within five years.
