IUPUI Campus Awards


Campus Awards Administered by Faculty Appointments and Advancement

Faculty Appointments and Advancement (FAA) promotes and administers the campus awards for faculty at IUPUI. Nominations are solicited in October and close in January.  Committee meetings are held in February, decisions/notifications in March, and presentation of awards in April.  Below is the full list of campus awards for which faculty are eligible.

Each award is governed by different criteria.  All necessary information will be found in the guidelines posted for each award; please read them carefully.  Once you have gathered the required documentation, click on the "nominate" link to begin the electronic online nomination process.

CV FORMAT:  As of August 2011, a new CV format for faculty on the IUPUI campus was developed.  The most recent update, based on user feedback, was completed in January 2012.  There are two different versions available--one where your information can be placed in a table format or one where your information can be placed in a tabbed format .  You may also view it as a PDF .

Successful candidates are honored at the Chancellor's Academic Honors Convocation held each year.  The next ceremony will take place on Friday, April 24, 2015.  At this time, faculty who have received significant external awards and honors in 2014 will be recognized.
