Faculty Nomination Options
Each College may submit forth one faculty nominee, including the Meyer Library and the West Plains campus. Colleges have two options for submitting their faculty nominee: 1) they may choose their nominee via a college committee or 2) the Dean may directly submit a faculty nominee, at their discretion.
Nominees must be current, full-time Missouri State University faculty. They may hold rank in any academic discipline but must have a distinguished record of performance and have been employed full-time at Missouri State for at least 3 years at the time of nomination.
Nominee Application Requirements
The faculty application packet must include a personal letter of application from the nominee, a minimum of 3 letters of support and curriculum vitae. The application letter should highlight the nominee's work and accomplishments in support of the University's public affairs mission. Support letters should be from those who can speak to the nominee's accomplishments in public affairs.
Applications should not exceed 10 pages maximum, excluding the curriculum vitae.
At least one of the three support letters must be from a current or recent student.
Letters of Support may be addressed to:
