major faculty awards

Dear Colleagues:

The UMass President’s Office (UMPO) is preparing a report on the status of the UMass  System entitled “UMass Performs”.  UMPO is currently collecting data from each campus and assessing how each campus is performing.  One of the metrics is the number of major national and international faculty awards and honors accrued by each campus. 

Since we currently do not collect this data, UMass Lowell does not fare as well as it should on this important category.  For example, UMass Amherst reports over 300 national & international faculty awards, while UMass Lowell reports ZERO.

We need your help! 

We are hoping that each full time faculty member will self-report their major national and international faculty awards and honors, according to common guidelines.  These guidelines are those used by the Arizona State University's Center for Measuring University Performance combined with those used by a reporting service Academic Analytics (already used by UMass Amherst).

Based on these guidelines, I know that some of our faculty have qualifying awards and honors – for example, Fellows of major professional societies, NSF CAREER and Presidential Young Investigator awardees, Fulbright Scholars, etc  A fuller list of qualifying awards and honors can  be found in the left-hand column, and in the attached files.

We need a strong self-reporting effort as soon as possible so that we can meet UMPO’s tight deadline for data collection.  There are three ways to report your awards:

1. E-mail your major awards and dates of the awards, to John Ting -- we will compile the awards list and add them to UML's Digital Measures repository.   Remember to include your Department & faculty rank!

2. Use the web form below.

3. Go directly to the Digital Measures web site and add your honors and awards. Log in with your UML e-mail password. Select the option to 'manage your activities', and then choose the 'awards and honors' option. 
(See DEMO)

Thank you in advance for all your help!  With your assistance we'll present UMass Lowell in the best light, and we'll successfully draw attention to our faculty's collective, outstanding achievements.

--John Ting

In an effort to shine a brighter light on what we are doing - and how we are doing - we have created an accountability report called "UMass Performance: Accountable and On The Move" around six key themes that measure 21 key indicators of success:

  • Student Experience & Success
  • Producing an Educated and Engaged Citizenry
  • World Class Research & Development Enterprise
  • Enhancing Social Well Being
  • Good Stewards of Resources
  • Telling and Selling the UMass Story

This accountability tool builds on data from our well-established "Performance Measurement System," which we have collected and made available to the public for 15 years. But this new report is meant to establish key priority areas, to delineate how progress is going to be measured, and to provide the results in a way that will be clear and convenient to all.
