How to submit a nomination

First, please review the criteria and eligibility requirements for the award you wish you nominate someone for.

For all awards, follow the nomination submission process:

Fill in the form below, which includes a space for a short statement (250 words is fine) of the key reasons why your nominee should be considered.

The form allows you to upload any supporting documents you would like to provide. If you have written a nomination letter or statement, you may upload it instead of providing a statement in the text box below. You may also upload supporting letters from others and additional documents, if desired. Additional materials are not required. We can accept files in any format: Word, PDF, etc.

Be sure to hit the “submit” button at the end of the form. You will receive an emailed confirmation from the Office of Faculty Governance upon submission. If you do not receive a confirmation email, please contact us at facgov@unc.edu.

Nominations remain active for three years. If you have nominated anyone within the previous two years, renomination is not required; however, additional or updated materials may be submitted.

Online submission of nominations is strongly preferred and assures that your materials are received and processed in a timely manner. For those who prefer to submit a paper nomination, please send your materials by regular or campus mail or by fax to:
