While most awards recognize past achievements, the APPA Fellow designation brings with it both recognition of specific accomplishments to date and expectations for continued involvement in APPA's leadership program through research and mentoring. This is APPA's highest individual achievement award.
In order to be eligible for the designation of APPA Fellow, individuals must:
- Employee (including Emeritus) of an APPA member institution for ten consecutive years.
- Complete APPA's Institute for Facilities Management.
- Complete the APPA Leadership Academy.
[The Board of Directors may waive attendance of the Institute and/or the Academy if it deems the applicant's body of work and education provides the same standard and quality of experience as attendance at these programs. Applicants should affirmatively request a waiver and supply information on their body of work and education as part of the application process.]
- Complete a research project under APPA's Center for Facilities Research - CFaR (Presentation of research at a professional facilities conference is encouraged but not required). Projects performed prior to the creation of CFaR must be approved by the existing CFaR Advisory Council.
- Prepare an article accepted for publication by APPA.
- Provide two references from colleagues in the educational facilities profession that can speak about your successes and dedication to the educational facilities profession.
Please use the checklist above to ensure that you have satisfied all the necessary requirements for the APPA Fellow Award prior to submitting your application. Proof of graduation from APPA programs is required (copies of certificates serve as proof) and all applications are reviewed by the Awards and Recognition Committee to ensure that they are complete. APPA Fellow Award recipients must be approved by the APPA Board of Directors.
