High Five My Faculty is a student nominated award to a faculty member who has mentored one or more undergraduate students in research or scholarship. This is a way for students to recognize and give thanks to undergraduate research mentors who have positively impacted their lives.


There is no deadline for nomination; nominations may be accepted through the online submission form anytime.

Selection Process

There is no limit to the number of faculty mentors who receive the High Five My Faculty award or the number of nominations a student may submit. The CURS Advisory Committee is responsible for determining awards from any nominations. Nominators should expect to hear back from CURS within 1 week and if the nominee is selected to receive an award, the nominator(s) will be contacted regarding delivery and recognition. Typically we hope for this to be a surprise to the Awardee.


CURS staff and the nominator(s) will present the award (Including an award ribbon)., preferably in class or other situation where the awardee can be recognized by her/his students or peers for efforts and good works as an undergraduate research mentor. Faculty awardees will also be recognized in the CURS newsletter.
