Nominations for the K-State Excellence in Engagement awards are due February 1, 2018. An announcement of two awards will be made by approximately February 15. Any campus faculty, professional staff or Extension professional is eligible. Awards may go to an individual or a partnership team.
Established in 2011 by the Office of Provost, the K-State Excellence in Engagement awards are given to highlight excellence in engaged scholarship via research, teaching or outreach. These awards recognize K-State Research and Extension and campus faculty initiatives that demonstrate innovative or sustained efforts in university and community engagement positively impacting both university and community partners.
By engagement, we mean "a form of research, teaching or service in which collaborative efforts between university and community stakeholders result in scholarly activity and community benefit around a public issue."
