Barbara A. Holland Scholar Award

Posted by Coalition of Urban and Metropolitan Universities on May 21, 2018

The Coalition of Urban and Metropolitan Universities is pleased to announce the inaugural Barbara A. Holland Scholar Award.

This annual award honors a bold, mid-career administrator-scholar whose leadership and intellectual voice illuminates the transformative power of urban and metropolitan higher education in the lives of individuals and communities.

One Holland Scholar is selected annually by a committee of emeriti presidents and senior leaders of CUMU member institutions. Candidates are assessed across three domains:

  • Professional impact and achievement
  • Demonstrated intellectual leadership within and beyond their institution
  • Scholarship impact relevant to their administrative role

This award is open to administrator-scholars from current CUMU member institutions.

Scholar Recognition

Holland Scholars are recognized at the CUMU Annual Conference and are expected to deliver prepared remarks. Awardees are provided free registration and an award of $2,000.

CUMU invites nominations for this award through July 13.
