President's Distinguished University Citizenship and Service Award

January 23, 2019

I am pleased to announce the call for nominations for the President’s Distinguished University Citizenship and Service Award and the President’s Distinguished Senior Lecturer and Lecturer Award. The President’s Distinguished University Citizenship and Service Award is presented 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. Previous recipients include:

Nicholas Heintz, Professor Emeritus, Department of Pathology & Laboratory Medicine
Stephanie Kaza, Professor Emerita of Environmental Studies and Director of the Environmental Program
Beth Mintz, Professor Emerita of Sociology and University Scholar
Judith L. Van Houten, George H. Perkins Professor Emerita 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.

The President’s Distinguished Senior Lecturer and Lecturer Award honors and recognizes the distinguished accomplishments of faculty who hold the rank of Senior Lecturer and Lecturer.  A faculty member in the rank of Senior Lecturer and Lecturer is awarded the President’s Distinguished Senior Lecturer Award and President’s Distinguished Lecturer Award for outstanding teaching, scholarship, and service. Previous recipients include:

Susan Dinitz, Senior Lecturer of English
Charles Briggs, Senior Lecturer of History
Thomas Chittenden, Senior Lecturer of Business

Faculty, staff, and students may nominate faculty members for the President’s Distinguished Faculty Awards.  Faculty may also self-nominate. A Committee of faculty members appointed by the Deans and the Faculty Senate will review 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 awards including the criteria and the nomination process.

The deadline to submit nominations is February 22, 2019. Nomination material should be sent to Gary Derr, Vice President for Executive Operations at Gary.Derr@uvm.edu or 347A Waterman Building. The recipients will be announced later spring semester. 

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

Tom Sullivan, President
