Endeavor! Committee

The Endeavor! Award Committee is chaired by a committee member selected by the Assistant Provost for Undergraduate Studies. Voting members of the committee consist of one representative from each college, a representative from the Honors Council, the Director of Awards and Sponsored Research, an at-large member, and a chair (nine members total). The Dean from each College will choose a member to serve on this committee and one alternate. The Provost will select the at-large member. The committee will be responsible for reviewing proposals submitted for funding and recommending to the Provost which proposals should be funded. Members of the committee from each college and the at-large member will serve two-year terms. The chair, as selected by the Assistant Provost, and Director of Sponsored Research serve continuous terms.
