  1. Evaluation of Scholarship

    (Single author/producer/director/editor/presenter earns most credits)

    Faculty Excellence Awards in scholarship and/or creative scholarship are designed to reward faculty productivity in terms of accomplishment and recognition. These accomplishments and recognition shall include refereed publications, presentations at professional conferences (local, regional, national, international, creative performances, exhibitions, installations, directing, written plays and/or poetry collections). To be considered for an award, the reported research must have been published or performed in the case of creative scholarship during the period under review. The reward of excellence also entails the measure of quality and quantity of the accomplishments. Self-published works will not be eligible for consideration. No specific subject or specialization area shall be ranked above others, so long as each is legitimately within the purview and mission of the interdisciplinary field of Pan-African Studies. The following works would be considered in determining meritorious accomplishments in research and creative scholarship.
