The Office of the Vice President for Research hosts a series of Scholarly Excellence Rallies to inform the university community and stakeholders within the State of New Mexico about the most significant research and creative activities of NMSU’s faculty and staff.  These Rallies honor faculty and staff for excellence and are designed to elevate awareness about NMSU’s scholarly efforts, their breadth and diversity,  and their impact on the New Mexico community and elsewhere.   Rally honorees will include researchers and project leaders for bringing significant external funding to the university, as well as faculty and staff for recognized scholarly achievements nominated by peers.  Students, faculty, campus leadership, government officials and the media are invited to participate in the Scholarly Excellence Rallies and to learn about the important discovery happening at New Mexico State University. 

If you would like to nominate a scholarly achievement to be considered as the subject of a rally, please complete the online nomination form.   Nominations are not necessary for significant funded research efforts.
