President's Distinguished University Citizenship and Service Award

October 15, 2014

I am pleased to announce the call for nominations for the President’s Distinguished University Citizenship and Service Award, presented annually, to a member of the University of Vermont faculty who has established a consistent and over time outstanding record of service to the University community. Last year’s recipient was Dr. Judith L. Van Houten, the George H. Perkins Professor of Biology and University Distinguished Professor of Biology. The award is designed to acknowledge exceptional service by an individual who is recognized as a true university citizen for contributions to institutional building at the University. The recipient will receive a prize of $2,500.

Faculty, staff and students may nominate faculty members for the President’s Distinguished University Citizenship and Service Award. Faculty may also self nominate. A Committee of faculty members appointed by the Deans and the Faculty Senate will re-view nominations. The Committee recommends candidates for the award to me and I will make the final selection. The attached file contains additional information about the award including the criteria and the nomination process. Information is also available online at President’s Distinguished University Citizenship and Service Award.

The deadline to submit nominations is Friday, December 12, 2014. Nomination material may be submitted using the links on the President’s Distinguished University Citizenship and Service Award webpage. Nomination material may also be sent to Gary Derr, Vice President for Executive Operations at Gary.Derr@uvm.edu or 347A Waterman Building. The recipient will be announced later in the spring semester.

I hope that you will take advantage of this opportunity to recognize a member of our faculty for their outstanding contributions and service to the University of Vermont.
