The purpose of Faculty Research Day is to showcase and celebrate excellence in research, creativity and scholarship by bringing together faculty from across our campus. The event is also intended to increase awareness and generate enthusiasm for scholarship among faculty as the University advances its research enterprise and its impact. Additionally, during the event the President’s Faculty Research Award, sponsored by our President and the Vice President for Research and Economic Development, is awarded to outstanding faculty researchers from across UA Colleges and Schools.

Nominations for the President’s Faculty Research Award are solicited from faculty, departments and colleges for the Emerging, Mid-Career and Senior Scholar Awards. For each award category, one award will be given to a faculty member in the area of Physical and Biological Sciences, Mathematics and Engineering; Social and Behavioral Sciences; and Arts and Humanities.

Nominations are accepted January 2 until NOON on February 28 and are to be submitted online through the UA InfoReady portal here:  https://ua.infoready4.com/#. Award recipients are recognized during the Faculty Research Day Awards Ceremony, held in April.
