Faculty Service Recognition Program

In addition to dedication to their students and their research, many faculty quietly perform service to the CU community – locally, nationally and internationally – often going far beyond what is expected of them. This service may take the form of acting as a faculty advisor to a student group or society; organizing a lecture series on campus or in the local community; or serving on a task force to address critical issues affecting the University. The BFA acknowledges these unsung contributions through the Faculty Recognition Program.

CU-Boulder faculty can nominate peers for recognition in the BFA Faculty Recognition Program by submitting a nomination form.

If you prefer, you can download and print a pdf nomination form.

Nominations are accepted throughout the year with recognition being given on a weekly basis.

Frequently Asked Questions

  2. Is this recognition only for a one-time activity?  No, this can be recognition for a one-time activity or on-going service activities.
  3. Does this have to be an on-campus activity?  No, we are recognizing faculty for all types of activities that they do that demonstrate going above and beyond.
  4. Are nominations only good for the week they were submitted?  No, nominees will be considered through the entire academic year.  Since we can only recognize a limited number each week, nominees may be recognized later in the year.
