As part of our mission, the Education and Training Core of the West Virginia University Injury Control Research Center would like to recognize excellence in teaching injury and violence prevention among our faculty as well as excellence in injury and violence research among our students. To that end, we are opening nominations for three different awards, each described below.
Excellence in Teaching – this award will be bestowed upon a faculty member who has demonstrated excellence in teaching and/or mentoring related to injury and violence prevention and control. This award is open to faculty members affiliated with the Injury Control Research Center as well as other WVU faculty teaching injury and/or violence prevention in their courses. Nominations for this award can be made by either students or other members of the faculty.
Outstanding Student Research Award – this award will be bestowed upon a graduate student who has demonstrated excellence in scholastic activity, academic performance, and overall achievement in research in any area of injury and /or violence prevention and control. The recipient of this award will receive a one-year paid membership to the professional organization of his or her choice, such as the Society for the Advancement of Violence and Injury Research (SAVIR).
Student Travel Award – this award will be bestowed upon a graduate student who is travelling to a national conference to present his or her research related to injury and/or violence prevention and control. The recipient of this award will be reimbursed up to $500 for the cost of travel. Self-nominations will be accepted.
