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 Faculty Affairs is responsible for issuing the award guidelines and managing the overall awards process.
Our college is conducting a pre-nomination process due Monday, October 23, 2023. Any faculty or staff member of our college can submit nominations and/or self-nominations. There is no limit to the number of nominations that can be submitted from a unit; however, nominators are encouraged to coordinate with departmental awards committees to prevent duplicate nominations of the same nominee. Pre-nominations will be reviewed by the COALS Awards Committee, which will recommend college nominees to the Dean. We will then coordinate with the nominators/departments in preparation of the full nominations and submission to the university.
To submit a nomination or self-nominate (it’s encouraged), please use the pre-nomination form linked in the appropriate category below.
