We are pleased to announce the call for nominations for the 2019-2020 Marilyn E. Demorest Faculty Advancement Award. This award is supported by an endowment created by Dr. Marilyn Demorest, Professor Emerita of Psychology and former Vice Provost for Faculty Affairs, to support the advancement of all UMBC faculty members in their academic careers; to facilitate their professional development; and to recognize their contributions to faculty advancement and success at UMBC.
This fund will be awarded annually to faculty who mentor and/or advise faculty and colleagues in their field. The Marilyn E. Demorest Faculty Advancement Award is conferred annually for a term of one year upon a UMBC faculty member.
Nominations (including self-nominations) for the 2019-2020 Award are due electronically to Vice Provost Patrice McDermott, email@example.com, in the Office of the Provost no later than Friday, November 22. The nomination should include a letter of recommendation (or self-nomination), a current curriculum vitae of the nominee, and an indication of how the nominee would spend the year as the Marilyn E. Demorest Faculty Advancement Awardee. The letter should make clear the faculty member’s contribution to mentoring and advising faculty.
The Marilyn E. Demorest Faculty Advancement Award will be appointed by the Provost based on the recommendation of the Honors and Awards Committee of the Faculty Senate. The award will allocate $2,000 to stipend and $500 to a discretionary expense account to draw upon for a variety of purposes, such as sponsoring workshops, conferences, travel, mentoring activity.
