The University Research Council solicits nominations from each dean for the annual Innovation Awards. Faculty members can make recommendations to their chairs, who will provide a list of names to the dean. Deans will consult with their College Research Committee to narrow the field to two nominees per category and will send a list of nominees from each college to the URC for selection.
