Nominations sought for exemplary units

Spectrum Volume 20 Issue 21 - February 19, 1998

The University Exemplary Awards Program recognizes the work of departments and/or programs that maintain exemplary teaching-and-learning environments for students and faculty members.
With this award, the university publicly honors the collaborative efforts and successes of a group of dedicated colleagues--actively performing work that is essential for sustaining a truly excellent academic environment.
The University Exemplary Departments and Programs Awards are given in recognition that the academic excellence of individuals is achieved within distinctive working-and-learning environments to which many individuals contribute in essential ways. A total of $40,000 will be awarded, with specific amounts to be determined by the Selection Committee.
The awards program was established as a part of the university's Faculty Rewards Project, a project which seeks to clarify the expectations of faculty members, and define appropriate rewards for accomplishments.
This year, departments and programs will be recognized for working collaboratively across departmental boundaries to fulfill common or complementary goals. Nominations are invited from students, faculty members, or others who have benefited from the work of the nominated department(s). Letters of nominations (not to exceed two pages) should describe the achievements of the department(s). Letters should be addressed to: Exemplary Department and Program Awards Committee, c/o Professor Ronald W. Daniel, Office of the Provost, CAMPUS 0132. The deadline for receipt of nomination letters is Friday, March 6.
