This award honors outstanding service to the university community and the community-at-large. Service activities might include a pattern of exemplary contributions to one's discipline, faculty governance, service learning, community activities, and other similar achievements. Eligible nominees will be full-time tenured or tenure-track faculty. (A stipend of $3,000 accompanies this award.) The following criteria will be used:
- Impact: The primary criterion is impact. There should be substantial evidence that the nominee's
service has had a significant positive impact on the community and/or university.
- Scope: There should be substantial evidence that the nominee's professional life has been characterized by a commitment to service activities as opposed to a one-time major involvement. There should not only be evidence of a pattern of service over time, but also of recent and/or current service contributions.
