General Focus: in recognition of full professors who have truly exceptional records in teaching, research, and service. The Harlan Hatcher Arts and Sciences Distinguished Faculty Award was established July 12, 2002, with gifts from Mrs. Anne Hatcher and her family from Ann Arbor, Michigan, in honor and memory of Dr. Harlan Hatcher, an alumnus and former dean of Arts and Sciences at The Ohio State University and then president of the University of Michigan from 1951 until his retirement in 1967.
Deadline: The second Friday in January
Nomination Process: Distinction will be measured across all three areas- teaching, research, and service. Ideally, the successful candidate will excel in all three areas. It is possible, however, that he/she might be extraordinary in only one area, if excellence is obvious in the other two. Nomination materials must present the case clearly for each candidate. If the nomination letter cites accomplishments that are not documented in the curriculum vitae, the nomination letter should include evidence of these accomplishments. In keeping with the university's ongoing commitment to diversity, nominations of women and minority faculty members are strongly encouraged. Eminent Scholars, Distinguished University Professors, and previous Harlan Hatcher awardees are not eligible for this award. The nomination should include:
- Nomination letter (no more than 3 pages) that provides a clear and detailed rationale for the nomination, including a statement of the nominee's impact on his or her discipline with reference to accomplishments in teaching, research, and service (e.g., detail about awards, honors, citations, and research funding).
- Curriculum vitae
Chairs may submit nominations of one of their faculty members to the Office of the Exective Dean by sending an electronic copy of the nominee's packet to email@example.com.
Funding: A one-time grant of $3,000 in support of academic work will be provided annually by the Harlan Hatcher Memorial Award Fund.
