Nominations for the 2024 Barbara A. Holland Scholar-Administrator Award are due June 17.

Now in its seventh year, this 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 from CUMU member institutions by a committee of current and emeriti presidents and chancellors of CUMU member institutions who provide an informed perspective on this approach to scholarly leadership. 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

Individuals may self-nominate or be nominated. Nominees will be contacted to request completion of full application materials.

Holland Scholars are recognized each October at the CUMU Conference. Awardees are provided gratis registration and a cash award of $2,000
