The Student Honors Advisory Council (SHAC) of the UNCW Honors College is pleased to sponsor an award designed to honor the practice of mentoring undergraduate research and creative scholarship at the University of North Carolina Wilmington. The award is intended to recognize demonstrated excellence in mentoring undergraduate researchers, to encourage mentoring relationships with undergraduate students, and to convey the campus' high regard for such contributions made by the faculty of the academic and research community. This award is granted to faculty members who mentor undergraduates outside of the classroom, and who are committed to honors level undergraduate research which extends above and beyond the classroom experience.

ELIGIBILITY CRITERIA

Faculty members from all departments are eligible for nomination for the Honors Faculty Mentor Award if they are currently serving as mentors for students who are finishing or have finished their departmental honors project and will be graduating at the end of the spring semester. Professors are eligible to be nominated for the award if they have five years of residence at UNCW and have supervised at least two University Honors or Departmental Honors graduates previously.

SELECTION CRITERIA

Nominations for this award, which can only be made by students who are finishing or have finished their departmental honors project, and are graduating at the end of the spring semester, should present evidence that the nominee has made a significant contribution to advancing undergraduate research and scholarship. The nominations will be reviewed by a committee comprised of the director of the Honors College, the President and Vice-President of SHAC (unless their faculty supervisors are nominated- in which case two other SHAC members will participate), a member of the Faculty Honors Advisory Council (FHAC), and one other SHAC member not engaged in an honors project. 

NOMINATION PACKAGE:

Again, only students who are finishing or have finished their departmental honors project, and will be graduating at the end of the spring semester may nominate their faculty mentor who meets the above criteria. The nomination package should be printed single-sided, on 8 1/2 x 11-inch paper, using 12-point font size, and assembled in the following order:

For Spring 2015: Nomination packages are due to the Honors College office by 5:00 pm on Monday, April 20, 2015. The recipient of the Honors Faculty Mentor Award will be announced at the Honors Medallion ceremony (Friday, May 8, 2015).
