Voluntary faculty service is critical to the effective functioning of the College. The purpose of this award is to annually acknowledge a faculty member who has made a significant and sustained contribution to the College of Medicine in the area of service. This award will complement the John P. Long Basic Science Teaching Award and the Dr. Ernest O. Theilen Clinical Teaching and Service Award.
Nominees must have a University based faculty appointment, in either the tenure track or the salaried clinical track. Nominees should have a record of multiple service activities, or a single major activity, over a sustained period. The primary type of service for which this award is intended includes non-compensated work on, for example, committees and ad hoc projects, and other types of leadership roles undertaken for the benefit of the College. Other Collegiate awards recognize clinical service and teaching per se, and so these are not the primary types of service referred to. Individuals who will be eligible for this award will often have a record of excellent service to their department, their discipline, the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics, and/or the larger University community. Although these activities should be included as supporting evidence by the nominator, there must be a clear record of important service to the College.
The Executive Committee will send nomination forms to each faculty member (defined as those faculty members who meet the criteria for voting in the College of Medicine Manual of Procedure). There will be a minimum two-week period for the receipt of nominations. Nominees shall be active faculty members, and shall not be a current department chair, dean, or member of the Executive Committee. Faculty members may not nominate themselves. Members of the Executive committee may not themselves make nominations. The sitting Executive Committee shall choose the awardee.
The following materials should be included for a nomination:
The final selection will be made during an executive session of the Committee, in November or December. The Dean will present the award to the recipient at the annual College of Medicine Faculty Recognition event in February.
The awardee will receive a plaque indicating the name of the award and the recipient's name. The awardee's name will also be listed on a plaque to be placed in a suitable prominent place in the College of Medicine). The awardee will receive $1,000 from the Dean's Faculty Development Fund. The Executive Committee and the Dean will review the amount of the award every three years.
