Five faculty are appointed annually to three-year terms. These five consist of the recipients of the College Faculty Award for Excellence in Teaching, the Senior Faculty Award for Excellence in Teaching, the Karl E. Gardner Outstanding Undergraduate Advisor Award and two at-large faculty appointed by the Dean upon the recommendation of the Associate Dean for Academic Programs. The Dean of the College of Agricultural, Consumer and Environmental Sciences and the Associate Dean for Academic Programs will be ex officio members of the Academy.
In the event an Academy member retires or leaves the University, a replacement will be appointed to complete the member's term. The Associate Dean for Academic Programs will consider the diversity of academic disciplines represented of the Academy when recommending the at-large appointments.
