OSLCE Announces Call to Nominate 2015 Lynton Award for Early Career Faculty

The annual Ernest A. Lynton Award for the Scholarship of Engagement for Early Career Faculty recognizes a faculty member who is pre-tenure at tenure-granting campuses or early career (i.e., within the first six years) at campuses with long-term contracts and who connects his/her teaching and research to community engagement.

Award eligibility:

  • Only full-time faculty
  • Faculty members who submit tenure materials for review prior to the Lynton Award application deadline are not eligible to apply


  • Academic colleagues, administrators, students and community partners may nominate faculty. Each nominator should aim to present a comprehensive account of the nominee’s publicly engaged teaching, research and service. In cases in which multiple individuals submit a single application for the nominations of a faculty member, one person should be designated as the primary nominator responsible for completing the application.
  • More than one faculty from a single university may be nominated.

The application deadline is 4 p.m. Friday, May 15. For more information please visit 2015 Lynton Award Call for Nominations. Further questions should be addressed to Dr. Elaine Ward, the Lynton Award coordinator by email at lyntonaward@marrimack.edu (subject line: “Lynton Award Help”) or by phone at (978) 837-4676.

If you are aware of community engagement initiatives on campus or elsewhere and would like to publicize these opportunities, please contact the Office of Service-Learning and Civic Engagement at servicelearn@stthomas.edu.
