Upcoming Award Deadlines

Please be aware that the deadline for nominations for Regents’ and University faculty awards for the fall semester is Sept. 15, 2017. This is the deadline for the deans’ nomination letters to be received by the Provost’s Office or VPRI’s Office. Following receipt of the nomination letters, the nominees will be contacted and given two to three weeks to assemble their materials. Since the deans will need time to process the nominations, please be aware that their offices will likely have earlier deadlines for receiving nominations from departments, faculty, staff, and students. More information can be found at unr.edu/provost/awards.
