To be eligible for the AMA Higher Education Marketer of the Year Awards, individual nominees and teams must be currently employed at a higher education institution with focus on the branding, marketing, and communications aspects of a college or university. All nominees will be considered regardless of organization size and budget. 

There will be two awards bestowed, one award recognizing an individual thought leader and one award recognizing an outstanding marketing team.

The Robert J. Lavidge Global Marketing Research Award recognizes a marketing practitioner or educator who has devised and successfully implemented a research/insight procedure that has practical implications for use by others.


Marketing practitioners or educators from anywhere in the world, who have demonstrated success in implementing a research procedure with practical implications, are eligible for this award. The procedure must have resulted in a significant advancement in the marketing research field. Such advancements might be methodological (i.e., in statistics or research procedures) or process-based (such as presentation methods or qualitative approaches). 

Consideration will be given to advancements in closely related fields, such as marketing statistics, that also have a specific and significant impact on the marketing research field. Research of the winning practitioner or educator should be widely available and easy to disseminate throughout the industry. Procedures must have been implemented within the preceding five calendar years.

The Charles Coolidge Parlin Marketing Research Award is the oldest and most distinguished award in the field.  This award is given to leading scholars and practitioners in honor of Charles Coolidge Parlin who is considered the pioneer of marketing research.


To be awarded the Charles Coolidge Parlin Marketing Research Award, distinguished academics and practitioners must have demonstrated outstanding leadership and sustained impact on advancing the evolving profession of marketing research over an extended period of time.  Specifically, this impact might be reflected in one or more of the following:

  • Exhibited leadership resulting in the effective use and value of marketing research and market based knowledge.
  • Developed and/or promoted new concepts, methods, or models for measurement and analysis that expand the capacity of organizations to achieve a better understanding of their markets, customers, and consumers.
  • Initiated creative integration of existing methodologies that resulted in more widespread use or appreciation of marketing research.

The committee policy evaluates a nominee three times – the year initially nominated and the following two years. Thus, individuals who were nominated for the 2021 and 2022 Parlin Award will be automatically considered for the 2023 Parlin Award and do not need to be re-nominated.
