President and Provost Faculty Awards

The President's Award for Outstanding Research and Creative Activity recognizes the achievements of senior faculty members. To qualify for the award, one must be a current (not emeritus) associate professor or full professor. The award selection committee considers the nominee's research and creative activities throughout their careers, with a special emphasis on accomplishments while at CMU.

The Provost's Award for Outstanding Research and Creative Activity recognizes the achievements of less experienced faculty members. To qualify, one must be a current untenured, tenure-track faculty member. The nominees' research and creative achievements at CMU are considered in the selection process.
