An Outstanding Faculty Award Workshop was hosted by SCHEV on April 14, 2015 to provide information and advice to institutions regarding how to prepare nomination packages.  SCHEV staff provided an overview of the award timeline, process and substantive criteria. This was followed by panel discussions that highlighted successful practices for preparing nomination packages and provided advice from reviewers and recent award recipients. The YouTube video is a 30-minute condensation of the most captivating moments of the three-hour event.
