The UNMC Impact in Education Awards are the highest education-related awards conferred by UNMC. The eight awards recognize the dedication and ingenuity of our educators. Award categories include emerging educator, innovation, leadership, mentorship, service, interprofessional education, research, and sustained achievement. 

 Individuals are nominated by their peers or self-nomination by completing the brief nomination form. Once nominated, candidates will need to complete additional nomination materials based on award criteria.

Recipients receive award funds for professional development, recognition at the annual award ceremony, and their name displayed on a plaque in the Academic Affairs office. The awards are sponsored by the Office of Academic Affairs, and the selection process and ceremony are facilitated by the Interprofessional Academy of Educators.
