Nominations will be accepted from anyone, a request for nominations will only be sent to those who have a direct tie to the department: faculty (including emeritus), staff, alumni, advisory board, etc.

The ISE Academy committee will review the nominations received to determine those that meet the eligibility criteria.After doing so, a ballot will be distributed to current faculty and staff, faculty emeritus and members of the academy to allow them to vote for the nominee(s) they feel best meet the eligibility criteria.

The ISE Academy committee will determine the inductees (at most three each year) based on both voting results and their discretion.

The chair of the ISE Academy committee, elected by the committee, will be responsible for execution of the process, including the call for nominations, distribution of ballots, etc.
