Outstanding Director and Coordinator Awards
Directors of Graduate Studies (DGSs) play a critical role in shaping the direction of graduate education in our programs and in enabling and ensuring the academic success of graduate students. Their colleagues, the Coordinators of Graduate Studies (CGSs), likewise play a critical role in ensuring that graduate programs operate smoothly and in shaping the overall educational experience of graduate students.
The Outstanding DGS Award and Outstanding CGS Award recognize those DGSs and CGSs who have made exceptional contributions to graduate education, a graduate program, and/or the graduate student experience in that program. Awards will be presented in each category annually, and each recipient will receive a $500 award.
Eligibility: DGS’s and CGS’s (or their equivalents, if titles differ) from any UMCP campus graduate program, are eligible for nomination. Faculty, staff, and/or students may make nominations. Past awardees are not eligible for a period of three years following receipt of the award.
Nomination Process: Department/Program Chairs may make nominations. The nomination deadline is Friday, February 28, 2020.
