The Ohio State University College of Medicine is committed to recognizing its faculty members for their important contributions regionally, nationally, and internationally. To this end, the college launched the Faculty Awards Committee  to promote faculty recognition by bringing attention to their achievements through awards nominations. 

The committee collects information about award opportunities, helps identifies appropriate nominees and supports nominators’ efforts. Specific committee charges include:

  • Gathering, reviewing, and publicizing criteria for the awards
  • Defining and publishing an annual awards calendar, allowing for timely nominations
  • Identifying faculty members to recommend for nomination for specific awards
  • Following established procedures for processing awards
  • Preparing and submitting an annual report of College of Medicine nominations and awardees to the Dean’s Cabinet

Committee membership includes one committee chair, 10 ex-officio members, and six rotating members (serving two-year terms, with the exception of those roles that turn over annually) from across the College of Medicine. The dean of the College of Medicine appoints the committee chair. Members are appointed by the dean in consultation with the Dean’s Cabinet and the committee chair.
