We had one agenda item: to evaluate applicants for the UNLV Graduate Teaching Award. Applications 

and a rubric were circulated ahead of the meeting. We began the meeting by compiling summary scales 

of applicants. We then discussed the tentative rank ordering of applicants, discussing various merits and 

weaknesses and related points in applicant profiles. The committee recommended the following 


First. Murtishaw

Second. Najimi

Third. Saladino

Valarie Burke recorded those recommendations. The next committee meeting in March will be devoted 

to discussion of a possible Graduate Mentoring Certificate program.
