Nominations Sought for Distinguished Faculty Award
Each year, we solicit nominations for the Gallaudet University Distinguished Faculty Award, which recognizes an individual who exemplifies the stature of the entire University Faculty.
The individual chosen will be honored at Commencement, and will be asked to give a lecture or workshop to the campus community during the 2010-2011 academic year. His or her name also will be added to the Distinguished Faculty Wall, inside the south entrance to Hall Memorial Building.
Nominations should be based on excellence in teaching, scholarship, and/or service. Nominees should have proven themselves active, contributing members of the Gallaudet community. Nominations should include a brief justification based on the above criteria, and sent to me at firstname.lastname@example.org no later than Monday, April 12, 2010. If you wish to reactivate a previous nomination, please make that request in writing. Letters should be sent to the Office of the Provost and labeled "Distinguished Faculty Award Nomination."
