UNCG Biology Head, Dr. Stan Faeth, Awarded UNCG Senior Research Excellence Award
Dr. Stan Faeth, UNCG Biology Professor and Department Head, was awarded the 2012-2013 Senior Research Excellence Award from the Office of Research and Economic Development. Congratulations Dr. Faeth!
In 1988, the Research Excellence Awards were established in recognition of the following principle:
"Given that creating and diffusing knowledge is a formal obligation of the University, the Research Excellence Award will be given to a full-time member of the faculty whose work contributes in an exemplary fashion to this end."
Each year, the Chancellor solicits nominations for the Research Excellence Awards and a faculty review committee studies the portfolios with regard to the following criteria: 1) the importance of the research contributions to the field, 2) the originality of thought, 3) the execution of the research, and 4) the pattern of the nominee's research productivity.
