The annual P.A. Mack Award honors members of the IU community who have demonstrated excellence and distinguished service to teaching that are consistent with FACET’s goals and ideals. P.A. Mack is a former IU trustee and lifelong advocate for teaching excellence.
The award may be given to FACET members, as well as non-FACET faculty, administrators, professional staff, alumni, and instructors. To qualify for the award, nominees’ service must extend beyond their own disciplinary unit and/or campus. Service activities need not be limited to the IU system, but the contributions cited in the nomination letter must include service to IU.
The nomination deadline is May 1. Nominators—who must be FACET members—should submit a three-to-four page letter documenting the nominee’s distinguished service, explaining how it advances FACET’s goals and ideals, and certifying that the individual meets the other eligibility requirements. Self-nominations are not accepted.
Recipients are recognized at the annual FACET retreat in May and receive a $2,500 award. They are also invited to lead the Annual P.A. Mack Distinguished Service to Teaching Forum at the retreat the following year.
