Celebration of Scholarship and Creative Work

The deadline to enter data into Digital Measures before March 15, 2023!

The celebration of Scholarship & Creative Work (CSCW) will take place on Thursday, April 20, 2023, from 4:00 - 5:00 p.m. at FLITE Library in room 240.

To capture more of the wonderful work that is being done, we are planning to utilize Digital Measures as the place for submissions.  We are hoping this will simplify the process by allowing employees to share their work in one place at one time. The timeframe of work being recognized will be November 1, 2021 - December 31, 2022.  All entries must be placed in Digital Measures before March 15, 2023, to be included. 

The categories considered for inclusion are Publications and Intellectual Contributions, Artistic and Professional Performances and Exhibits, Presentations, and Intellectual Property. The date and location must be included for it to be considered.  Work published or performed outside of Ferris and KCAD is eligible.

To be eligible for recognition, the work must meet the following criteria:

1. Work must have been published, displayed, presented, or acted between November 1, 2021 and December 31, 2022 during the year(s) recognized. Work to be considered needs to be submitted in Digital Measures.

  • Pre-Press Journal articles that have not been published yet in print, but are on-line, will not be accepted until they are published in print if the journal is a print journal.

2. Originality.  Work must be original and involves substantial editing or compilation. 

  • Copy editors who correct grammar are not recognized; however, a main editor who compiles a work as a whole is accepted. This type of editorial work may include placement of texts, creating a unified voice, moving the reader to some points of view and conclusion, and writing the preface and summary.
  • Reviewer work is not accepted unless review is substantial (scholarly, footnoted, and lengthy). Reviews that are one or two paragraphs long are not accepted.

3. External Recognition.  Work must be recognized by a committee or group outside of Ferris.

  • The work does not necessarily need to be peer-reviewed but the work must have been submitted for inclusion and chosen while someone else’s work was denied. For example, a painting submitted to a gallery for sale would not be recognized but work accepted to be a gallery exhibition would count. Works that are self-published or published on someone’s blog or website, with the blog or website owner being the only reviewer, are not accepted.
  • Work recognized in an online journal may be accepted if decisions are made by a committee.
  • Work done in a public space where there is no oversight, such as performance art showcased at a mall, is not accepted.
  • Work published in a Ferris venue such as Kendall’s Helen Miller Kendall Gallery for graduate work (HMK Gallery) or in Ferris’ Doctorate in Community College Leadership (DCCL) publications such as DCCL Perspectives are not accepted.
  • Student work done in or for a class is accepted if it receives outside recognition. For example, a student’s publication won an American Advertising Award (ADDY) and was subsequently accepted by the Celebration committee, even though the book had not yet been published by a company.
