Presidential Research and Creative Achievement Award Committee
Since 1974, in recognition of the mission to facilitate the research, scholarship, and creative activity at the University of Maine that results in national and international recognition, the President has annually presented the Presidential Research and Creative Achievement Award to a University of Maine faculty or staff member who has attained such distinction. Tenured UMaine and Cooperative Extension faculty, full-time lecturers (in their sixth year of service or beyond), and staff (in their sixth year of service or beyond) are eligible for this award.
Internationally-recognized research, scholarship, and creative activity distinguish the University of Maine as the State’s flagship university, where faculty and staff contribute knowledge to issues of local, national, and international significance, and have a distinct role in mentoring students through research. The recipient receives a medallion and monetary award.
