The Faculty Senate established the UNMC Outstanding Faculty Mentor of Junior Faculty Award to recognize senior faculty mentors who have served as mentors. Full-time faculty mentors at the Associate or Professor rank are eligible to be nominated by junior faculty. Deans, Chairs, and departmental leaders whose job requires them to mentor junior faculty are ineligible for the award.
The College of Nursing annually awards the Donna Westmoreland Excellence in Faculty Mentoring Award to a current full-time faculty member who demonstrates excellence in mentoring faculty or graduate assistants in teaching or teaching scholarship. Deadline each year is March 15.
