Nominations sought for W.Va. professor of the year

September 29, 2008

The Faculty Merit Foundation of West Virginia announced that nomination forms for the 2008 Professor of the Year Award have been distributed throughout West Virginia and also are available online at www.wvhumanities.org.

The nominations must be postmarked no later than Nov. 7.

The primary step in the selection process is the request for nominations, which must include comprehensive and specific information about each nominee. The foundation board selects finalists based on written information presented and on interviews with candidates.

The Professor of the Year and four runners-up will be honored at a banquet in Charleston, W.Va., in early 2009. The winner will receive a $10,000 cash award and a handmade trophy designed specifically for this program.

The Faculty Merit Foundation was created in 1984 to recognize and reward outstanding innovation and creativity among the faculties of West Virginia's public and private institutions of higher education. Through the Professor of the Year program, the achievements of these individuals are brought to the attention of the entire state.
