The schools and colleges and library select winners, who become the nominees for the campus-level awards.

Committees comprised of the winners (school-, college- and library-level, as well as campus-level) from the past two years select the campus-level winners for Teaching, Leadership and Service, and Research/Creative Work.  The winner of the Librarianship Award is selected by the Auraria Library faculty.  The winner of the Faculty Mentoring Award is selected by a committee of faculty members involved in the Center for Faculty Development and Advancement mentoring program.  The winner of the Practices Related to IRC Faculty is selected by a committee from the University of Colorado Denver Association of Lecturers and Instructors (UCDALI).
