FAC 7.C.4. Barbara G. Sniffen Faculty Governance Service Award.


The purpose of the Barbara G. Sniffen Faculty Governance Service Award is to emphasize the critical role of faculty service activities in the functioning of the University, and to recognize individuals who have compiled truly exceptional service records over the course of their careers at the University of
Wisconsin Oshkosh.

To be eligible for this award, faculty must have been a member of the UW Oshkosh faculty for at least 12 years and have the rank of Associate Professor or Professor at the time of nomination.

The selection criteria for this award include the number of service activities over a faculty member's career at UW Oshkosh and the significance of those activities.  Teaching and Scholarship are not included in the selection criteria. Holding the rank of Associate Professor or Professor provides sufficient evidence that adequate teaching and scholarly performance have been demonstrated.

Nominees for this award will submit a complete list of their service activities while members of the UW Oshkosh faculty.  This list may include service to one's department and college, UW Oshkosh, and the UW System.  Information on teaching performance, scholarly activities, or professional or community service may not be included.

In October, the Faculty Senate Office will solicit nominations for the Barbara G. Sniffen Faculty Governance Service Award. Self-nominations are allowed.

A three-person selection committee will be appointed by the Executive Committee of the Faculty Senate. Committee members must be previous winners of this award with the rank of Professor or Professor Emeritus (former Presidents of the Faculty Senate may serve on the committee if previous winners are not available). The committee's charge will be to review and consider the service records of those nominated and select one individual to receive the award. Should the committee conclude that none of the nominees have sufficiently outstanding service records to merit receiving the award, no award will be made.
