Beginning in 2009, The Lynn University Library, working in conjunction with the Office of Academic Affairs, established an annual recognition of faculty members who published works during the past year, known as the Published Faculty Reception. To be eligible for inclusion, publications, including books, articles, papers and musical recordings, needed to be peer-reviewed or published by scholarly entities.

Over the years, the scope of eligibility for inclusion has expanded to also include posters, presentations, artwork, sound recordings, musical scores, performances, art exhibits, and more. With this broadened scope, the 2018-2019 academic year ushered in modified inclusion rules and a new name. Now known as the Academic and Creative Excellence Reception (or ACE Awards), publications and other creative works must be in the faculty or staff member’s discipline, must be published in the previous calendar year (January 1 – December 31) and can include:

  • Articles
  • Art Exhibits
  • Books
  • Chapters
  • Conference Proceedings
  • Editorials
  • Films
  • Graphic Novels
  • Journals
  • Letters to the Editor
  • Musical Scores
  • Musical Reviews
  • Performances
  • Poems
  • Poster Presentations
  • Sound Recordings
  • News Articles
  • Workshops

If you would like to submit a publication or creative work or have questions about what is eligible for inclusion, please contact Lea Iadarola.
