Who on your campus has done a stellar job of advancing the aspirations of Collegium there? Who is promoting the Catholic mission via innovative teaching and/or service?

Who is walking the inspirational talk of Catholic social teaching? Turn your answer to any of those questions into a brief nomination of that person by September 15.

Collegium Visionary Award Nomination Guidelines:

The Collegium Visionary Award is meant to celebrate and advance the work of Collegium alums in the ways that Collegium fosters: leadership to promote Catholic mission on member campuses, scholarship to advance the Catholic intellectual tradition or to bring other traditions into fruitful dialogue with it, and innovative teaching to bring aspects of the summer colloquy to life for students.

The strongest nominations provide clear and vivid examples of how the nominee merits this particular award, by shining lights on their work on campus, in the classroom, and/or in the scholarly realm. That is, it’s best to avoid writing as if it is for a tenure/promotion decision. Details responding to the specific prompts below will give the Collegium Board the information they need to make an informed decision about the awardee. We recognize candidates may not fit all prompts so please enter “Not applicable” for those prompts as opposed to stretching. Bulleted lists with specific examples are encouraged. To nominate a Collegium alum as a Visionary Awardee, please submit your written responses to the prompts below at Visionary nomination by September 15th.
