Faculty Awards - Rules and Procedures

Purdue University’s Office of Global Partnerships (OGP) and the Global Academic Committee (GAC) seek faculty nominations for the Outstanding Leadership in Globalization Awards in any or all of the academic mission categories of Learning, Discovery, and Engagement. These awards are open to all categories of full-time university faculty members. A comprehensive Outstanding Leadership in Globalization Award will be given to a faculty member who has accomplishments in all three mission categories of Learning, Discovery, and Engagement. A pillar-specific Outstanding Leadership in (Learning, Discovery or Engagement) Globalization Award will be given to a faculty member who has accomplishments that are focused on one of the three mission categories of Learning, Discovery or Engagement. The review committee will accept up to three (3) faculty nominations per college (as well as Discovery Park). Nominations must follow the existing college or unit’s procedures for administering faculty awards. Self-nominations will not be accepted.

  • Please submit a nomination packet consisting of a 1-page Executive Summary (template provided at link below) plus a maximum of 5 additional pages addressing the criteria for the award followed by supporting materials (e.g., statement of globalization interests and philosophy, projects, activities, and accomplishments, significance to Purdue, impact, constituent statements, etc.).
  • Recognizing that sustained global relationships take time and dedication, the nomination should focus on global accomplishments achieved within the past 5 years. Globalization in this context is defined as developing, facilitating and maintaining programs and activities in partnership with universities, agencies, and private-sector constituents outside the USA involving faculty and/or students from Purdue and international counterparts in all aspects of learning, discovery and engagement.
  • DEADLINE for nominations is March 3, 2023
  • Faculty awardees will be announced and recognized during International Education Week the following Fall.
  • Faculty nominees can have accomplishments in all or one of the three categories (learning, discovery, and engagement), and will be recognized with either the comprehensive “Outstanding Leadership in Globalization Award” or the pillar-specific “Outstanding Leadership in (Learning, Discovery or Engagement) Globalization Award”.  Each faculty awardee will receive $2,500 towards furthering their efforts to support globalization in Learning, Discovery, or Engagement.
