Faculty Scholar nominations sought

Jan. 12, 2004

KALAMAZOO--The Distinguished Faculty Scholar Committee is seeking nominations for the 2003-04 Distinguished Faculty Scholar Awards. The deadline for nominations is Jan. 24.

Up to three awards may be made each year. Those honored during this cycle will be announced at the 2005 Academic Convocation. Each winner will receive a $2,000 honorarium that becomes part of the recipient's base salary, a plaque and an opportunity to present a lecture, exhibition or performance for the University community.

All current, continuing board-appointed employees with faculty rank are eligible, but they must have at least seven academic years of service to WMU. The awards are based on outstanding professional achievements. The accomplishments may be artistic, historical, literary, philosophical, scientific or technical. Wide recognition beyond WMU is essential.

Guidelines and nomination forms are being distributed on campus. For more information, contact Ernst A. Breisach, professor emeritus of history, 387-4590 or <ernst.breisach@wmich.edu>.
