Nomination Button

Annually faculty members are recognized through the Faculty Senate Awards for their exceptional efforts in support of OHSU's mission. Awards are made for contributions WITHIN THE LAST FIVE YEARS in one of five categories: research, leadership, teaching, service and collaboration. Award categories rotate every year so that each unit is nominating individuals in a new award category.

This year's unit/category designations are:

  • Affiliated Units/Institutes: Teaching
  • College of Pharmacy: Leadership
  • School of Dentistry: Excellence
  • School of Medicine: Service
  • School of Nursing: Research
  • School of Public Health: Collaboration


In order to reward the activities that are current, nominations must be for a full time or part-time OHSU faculty member. Emeritus faculty members are not eligible. Faculty members must appointed or affiliated with an OHSU Academic Unit.


Click on the Submit Your Nomination and fill out the nomination form online.  You will be able to type your nomination letter into the form provided or upload a separate document. Please note: you can only submit one nomination per faculty member. If you would like to nominate multiple faculty members you will need to fill out more than one nomination form. The nomination can be a short paragraph or letter showing tangible evidence why you think this individual deserves this award in the specified category. Final Deadline to receive nominations is Friday, February 24th at 5:00pm.

Up to four nominees will be chosen from each unit/category and each finalist will receive $500. The award winner from the category will receive $3,500 and will have his/her name engraved on the Faculty Senate Awards Memorial Plaque.
