Each year the university recognizes three departments or programs that have demonstrated outstanding achievement in maintaining an excellent academic environment for students and faculty members alike.

This year, the departments and programs will be recognized for their work in developing and sustaining innovative and effective departmental approaches to introductory courses, graduate or undergraduate levels. The awards include a $10,000 to $20,000 operating-budget supplement for the departments or programs.

Nominations are invited from students, from faculty members, and from others who have benefited from the work of the department in sustaining excellence in introductory courses. Letters of nominations (not to exceed two pages) should describe the introductory course(s), addressing what aspects of the course or curriculum have made this program stand out from others.

Letters should be addressed to: Exemplary Department and Program Awards Committee, c/o Susan Brooker-Gross, Office of the Provost, CAMPUS 0132. The deadline for receipt of nomination letters has been extended to Feb. 12, 1996.
