Any University of Idaho faculty member may place in nomination the name of a colleague. To do so, he or she must provide:
- A letter of nomination that describes the nominees scholarly or creative accomplishments, the body of work to be recognized, the significance of the work, the role played in multi-author works, and mentoring of coworkers to careers in subjects or related fields.
- Two letters of support from internationally acclaimed practitioners (non-U-Idaho) in the field who can speak knowledgeably of the nominee’s contributions to the discipline.
- Two to three letters from current or former coworkers describing the nominee’s excellence as a mentor and professional in the discipline. (Note: nominees should not be encouraged or permitted to solicit letters supporting this nomination.)
- Full curriculum vitae.
- Reprints, reviews and other documentation may be included provided that the subject is restricted to the work on which the nomination is based (not more than 5).
