This spring, the Office of Research and Engagement will celebrate the achievements of students, faculty, staff, and community partners for their achievements in research, engagement, and compliance activities with an awards ceremony. This annual ORE Research Awards Luncheon will include recognition of the comprehensive research enterprise, including activities related to funding, mentorship, creative achievement, community engagement, and responsible conduct of research.
There are 23 award categories including six that will be recognized from the floor. Many of the awards are based on data points from Elements, a system that helps faculty record their scholarly activities, and Cayuse, a system for creating and tracking research grant proposals. Others will be selected by committee or through a nomination process. Nominations are due by March 1, 2019.
“Every day, people at the university and in our community work to increase knowledge, scholarship, and scientific innovations,” said Interim Vice Chancellor for Research Robert Nobles. “Historically, the Office of Research and Engagement has not done as well as we could to recognize these efforts. That changes this spring.”
The ORE Research Awards Luncheon will be held from 11:30 a.m.–1:30 p.m. in the Student Union Ballroom on Monday, March 25 and is by invitation only. Winners will be announced on ORE’s website following the ceremony.
