Nominations are now being accepted for the 2018 Hazel Barnes Prize. The deadline for nominations is March 5, 2018.
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 CU-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.

The most thoughtful preparation of the file will consist of a scrupulous adherence to the stated criteria of the Award, which will significantly influence how the Committee reads the file and therefore will consequently affect the outcome of the competition.
