Nominators should submit a letter explaining the rationale for the nomination and give detailed information about the nominee’s record in teaching, research and service. It is essential that the nominator provide information for each of these three areas as excellence in all three is a requirement for eligibility for the Award. The nominator should also include documentation that would help the jury in its decision making. It is the responsibility of the nominators to provide all necessary information, as the jury will review only the material it receives.

Nominations will be adjudicated by a jury approved by CAUT Council. The jury’s recommendation will be made to the Fall Council for approval.
