The Faculty Coordinating Council recommends that the seven current faculty awards process be implemented jointly by the FCC and selected Standing Committee of General Faculty Organization (GFO). The FCC would provide oversight of the awards process to include creating a timeline for the awards process (i.e, announcement dates, due dates) and coordination/consultation with the designated staff member assigned to prepare announcements, collect and collate applications, and distribute to appropriate committees. It is recommended that the past GFO Chair, or another FCC member who has interest, serve as the faculty awards contact person, coordinating with staff and the standing committees. FCC should determine the awards timeline by November of the academic year.

The standing committees who are responsible for an award (see below) will determine the process they want to use for reviewing applications and determining an award recipient. This may include a sub-committee or task force of the committee or the broader CON GFO membership, or a shared task force between more than one committee in the case of the teaching awards. The select standing committees are also responsible for meeting the designated timeline and coordinating with the designated FCC awards contact person.
