Awards and Honors

The Office of the Provost has created a collection of highly prestigious national and international awards for which faculty can apply and/or be nominated.

The Faculty Awards and Recognition Committee (FAR)

In 2015, a Faculty Awards and Recognition Committee was created with two primary goals:

  1. to recognize and honor faculty at Purdue who have won significant distinction and/or hold positions or have memberships in prestigious academic bodies;  
  2. to encourage and support faculty as they apply for top awards and honors or seek membership in such organizations.

The Chair and members of the FAR committee are ready and willing to assist Purdue faculty with all steps of the nomination and application process for external awards and honors—including providing help for drafting statements of intent, securing letters of recommendation, providing feedback on nomination packets, etc.

For further information or assistance, contact Nancy Peterson, or consult the following list of FAR committee members.
