University Senate Chair - Criteria
The University Senate Chair Award is awarded annually to a full-time tenured faculty member whose research, teaching, and service are seen as significant contributions to the mission and purpose of the university. Nominations and the selection of a single nominee for each college and the library are made on the basis of a vote of the entire faculty of each college and the library, respectively. Each nominee submits a five-page packet of information for review by all University Senate members. This packet, which shall be a maximum of five pages, shall cover the previous five years at Louisiana Tech. It shall include (as applicable): a list of courses taught and the overall teacher evaluation rating for each course; a statement of beliefs concerning the importance of teaching, research, and community/university service to the overall mission of the university; a selected list of publications, grants, and similar activities; and a selected list of community/university service activities. These nominees are then voted on by the University Senate. The award includes a plaque and a $2000 stipend paid through the Louisiana Tech University Senate. The award is presented during the annual fall meeting of the faculty and staff.

Any faculty member in any area may be nominated for the University Senate Chair Award in accordance with the following criteria:
  1. The nominee has a full-time, non-administrative, tenured faculty appointment; and
  2. The nominee has not previously received this award.
