Deserving administrative faculty members at the University are eligible to be nominated as recipients of the University’s Distinguished Service Award for 2009.

The award recognizes outstanding administrative faculty members who are near the end of their campus career, and who have spent a substantial portion of their career in service to our University. Current members of the faculty and emeritus faculty members are eligible for nomination.

The Distinguished Service Award was initiated in 1996. It was established to “recognize members of the administrative faculty members who have made substantial contributions to the stature, reputation and quality of the university through service to the citizens of the state and/or the university community.”

Following are the four basic criteria used to identify the honored recipient:
