The Awards Committee seeks nominations for the Presidential Excellence Awards for Distinguished Scholarship, Distinguished Teaching, and Distinguished Service. All full-time faculty members, with the exception of Distinguished Professors, are eligible for these awards. (Adjunct members of the faculty are eligible for the Distinguished Teaching Award [Adjunct Faculty].) Faculty who have received Presidential Awards become eligible for another award in the same category after seven years.
Letters of nomination are welcome from any source within the Baruch Community, including departmental executive committees, deans, chairpersons, colleagues, and students. We also invite self-nominations and nominations from Baruch alumni.
For the scholarship award, the letters of nomination should indicate the significance of the candidate's scholarship to her or his field. For the teaching award, the nomination should describe the outstanding work in instruction. For the service award, the nomination should include a description of the outstanding service. Nominees will be contacted for the supporting materials needed by the Awards Committee.
To make a nomination, please follow fill out the online form http://www.baruch.cuny.edu/nomformfac or send your nominations to the Provost’s Office: Attn: Presidential Excellence Awards Committee, Box D-0701.

BARUCH COLLEGE PRESIDENTIAL EXCELLENCE AWARDS FOR DISTINGUISHED SCHOLARSHIP, DISTINGUISHED TEACHING
(FULL-TIME FACULTY), DISTINGUISHED TEACHING (ADJUNCT FACULTY), AND DISTINGUISHED SERVICE
Established and maintained by grants from the Baruch College Fund, the Presidential Excellence Awards are given to faculty members to stimulate and reward outstanding achievement and to enhance the College as a center of excellence. The Awards are made by the President, acting on the recommendation of the Awards Committee. The recipient receives an honorarium and a certificate, and the names of all recipients are inscribed on a plaque, which is prominently displayed.
The Distinguished Scholarship Award encompasses three categories:
Written Scholarship recognizes full-time faculty who have published a book, monograph, article, or series of articles of scholarly distinction in the past two years; Creative Work recognizes faculty who have had a distinguished achievement in the fine or performing arts during the past two years; Long-Term Career Achievements recognizes faculty whose scholarship in the past 10 to 15 years constitutes an exceptional contribution to their field.
The Distinguished Teaching Award (full-time faculty) and The Distinguished Teaching Award (adjunct faculty) recognize full-time faculty and adjunct faculty whose outstanding pedagogical ability, commitment to teaching, and achievements in teaching are making a positive impact on the quality of instruction and student life at the College.
The Distinguished Service Award recognizes full-time faculty whose service distinct from teaching and scholarship is improving the quality of the Baruch community through leadership in developing new directions for College activity, in developing resources for the College, and/or in connecting the College to relevant external communities.
