Progress Report – Awards Committee

Wendy Boswell, Chair
January 2009

  1. Goal: Develop protocol for award process

·       Disseminate award protocol (“process map”) to the EC prior to Fall EC meeting
·       Discuss protocol at the Fall EC meeting
·       Incorporate feedback and revise for final EC approval by end of 2008


·       Protocol was disseminated and discussed at Fall EC meeting
·       Suggested changes were incorporated
·       Protocol was emailed to Dave on Dec 22 to distribute to the EC
·       Final EC approval pending

  1. Goal: Increase the number of nominations submitted for the “Distinguished” awards

·       Continue to increase “advertisement” of awards and nomination process
·       The EC has been asked to assist with encouraging nominations for the Service Award in particular
·       The EC will be updated regarding the number of nominations three weeks prior to the nomination deadline


·        On-going

  1. Goal: Enhance the diversity of members of the Award Committee
·        Bring in broadened and considerate perspectives on the award committees
·        Scholars from diverse sources and backgrounds have been asked and have agreed to serve on the award committee. Diversity on dimensions such as:
o       Non-U.S.
o       teaching universities
o       practitioners
o       balance of individuals in different programs (e.g., psych vs. business schools)
o       not necessarily past winners of the respective award
·        Diversity continues to increase. For example, in regards to the “2nd round awards,” there are 18 members that are practitioners (two of these are chairing a committee) and 4 international members
·        See attached award committee members
  1. Goal: Restructure the Raymond A. Katzell Award
·        Paul Thayer discussed various options with Kitty and Kitty responded with her preference
·        The Katzell Award has been revised
·        There are currently no nominations for the Katzell award
·        The committee (chaired by Laura Koppes) is actively soliciting and developing a slate of possible nominees
Updates or Comments from Chair:
The deadline for nominations for the 2nd round awards is January 30. There are currently a handful of nominations for the scholarships, fellowships, and grants. Once the nomination process closes, the committees will evaluate the nominees and submit their recommendation to me by March 1. I will then forward the Award Committee recommendation to Dave Nershi within a few days.
