Thomas Ehrlich and Ernest A. Lynton Faculty Awards
The Ernest A. Lynton Award for the Scholarship of Engagement and the Thomas Ehrlich Civically Engaged Faculty Award recognize early career and senior faculty, respectively, who practice exemplary engaged scholarship through teaching and research. The awards are presented in partnership with Brown University’s Swearer Center. Recipients are selected on the basis of their collaboration with communities, institutional impact, and high-quality academic work.
Be affiliated with a Campus Compact member institution
For the Lynton Award: Be full-time, early-career faculty. Early career is defined as pre-tenure for those on the faculty track; faculty in contract systems should not be beyond their sixth year at the time of nomination.
For the Ehrlich Award: Be a full-time senior faculty member. Senior faculty is defined as post-tenure or middle- to late-career, if not in a tenure-line appointment.
Demonstrate a substantive body of work developed over a significant period of time. The award is not focused on the recognition of individual projects.
