About the Community-Engaged Research Lecture (CERL) Award
The Annual Community-Engaged Scholarship Lecture Award recognizes exceptional scholarly work that embodies UNM's commitment to community engagement and profoundly and systematically affects the relationship between the university and the larger community in a positive and meaningful way. This is the highest award for community-engaged scholarship bestowed by the University of New Mexico. The nominee must be an active, full Professor or exceptional Associate Professor at the time of the nomination is submitted. The scholarship or the creative work of the nominee must be of the highest quality and should be tied to the faculty member's expertise.
