The Max S. Peters Faculty Service Award is designed to recognize outstanding service by faculty in the College of Engineering and Applied Science to the profession of engineering, the college, the university, and/or the public of the state of Colorado. Instructional, research, and tenured/tenure-track faculty are eligible. The $1,000 award is named after its first recipient, Max S. Peters, former dean of the college and 1971 Distinguished Engineering Alumni Award recipient (see profile).
The service may be professional, civic, or of other character. The contribution of the nominee should emphasize the individual’s concern for the common good, the willingness to give time, the understanding shown of others and their problems, the ability to draw together varied resources and the innovative means used to solve these problems.
Nomination information is sent to each departmental office by the Dean’s Office.
Nominations and supporting documentation should be returned to the Dean’s Office by the first Friday in November.
A committee of three, appointed by the dean, will review all nominations and recommend an award recipient to the dean.
Award will be given at the college faculty and staff reception in January.
