Nominations are now being accepted for the 2013 Hazel Barnes Prize. The deadline for nominations is Feb. 15, 2013.

The Hazel Barnes Prize is one of the most prestigious awards at the University of Colorado Boulder and focuses on the enriching relationship that occurs between teaching and research. Nominees should be regionally and nationally recognized, tenured faculty members who are not only outstanding teachers but also have distinguished records in research and scholarship over a substantial period of time at the University of Colorado Boulder.

The nominator must succinctly address the relationship between these two professional responsibilities of faculty and show the apparent impact that the nominee has had on students, faculty, colleagues, and the university. 
Reference letters supporting the nomination also must address this key interaction.

A faculty member may be nominated no more than three times during their career at CU-Boulder.

New this year, the nomination packet should be supplied as documents in pdf format with bookmarks to allow the selection committee to access different sections easily. This packet can be emailed to Carole Capsalis, or brought to the Chancellor’s office at 914 Broadway on a memory stick.
