The Association of Former Students University Level Distinguished Achievement awards honor Texas A&M University faculty and staff members in the areas of teaching, research, student relations, graduate mentoring, extension/outreach/continuing education/professional development, administration, and staff support. Details of each award are described below. Each award consists of a $4,000 gift, a framed certificate, and an engraved watch. These awards are funded by The Association of Former Students. The Office of the Dean of Faculties is responsible for issuing the award guidelines and managing the overall awards process.
Our college is conducting a pre-nomination process due October 21, 2022. The short pre-nominations will be reviewed by COALS Awards Committee to recommend the college nominee(s) for each award category. We will then coordinate with the nominators/departments in preparation of the full nominations and submission to the university.
To nominate or self-nominate (it’s encouraged), please use the pre-nomination form linked in the appropriate category below. Any faculty or staff member from the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences can submit nominations. There is no limit for the number of nominations that can be submitted from a unit. Nominators are encouraged to coordinate with departmental awards committees to avoid duplicate nominations of the same nominee.
