Each year the Faculty Senate awards the James W. McLamore Outstanding Service Award, the Outstanding Teaching Award, and the Distinguished Faculty Scholar Award. These highly prestigious awards recognize the exceptional efforts of University of Miami faculty and other members of the UM community in the three key areas of academic life.
Faculty members are encouraged to submit nominations to the Senate for any or all of these distinguished awards. Recipients are selected based on the results of a highly competitive peer-review process. The links below provide nomination criteria and more detailed information regarding the awards.
Nomination materials for each of the awards are due to the Faculty Senate office by Monday, October 14.
The James W. McLamore Outstanding Service Award recognizes service above and beyond the call of duty by a member of the University community.
The Outstanding Teaching Award recognizes outstanding teaching by a faculty member with a substantial record of teaching at the University.
The Distinguished Faculty Scholar Award recognizes either a single outstanding scholarly achievement or a lifetime of distinguished accomplishment in any area of research or creative activity.
