Nominations are now open for the 2024 University Faculty Lecture Award

This award, established in 1974, is intended to honor current or emeriti faculty whose research, scholarship, or art is widely recognized by their peers and whose achievements have had a substantial impact on their profession, on the research or performance of others, and perhaps on society as a whole.

In addition to honoring the recipient, the award is designed to increase awareness, both within and outside the University, of the nature and significance of original work being done by outstanding faculty members. Accordingly, the recipient is asked to present a lecture open to the University community and the general public.

You are in a unique position to recognize and forward names of appropriate nominees.
