Established by the Leadership Board in 1997, the Outstanding Commitment to Students Award recognizes a tenured or tenure-track faculty member in the College of Arts and Sciences for service in the advancement of students beyond the classroom.
Department chairs receive a call for nominations for this award late in the fall semester; nominations, which may come from chairs, alumni, faculty, and students, are due in mid-February. The award is presented annually at the College of Arts and Sciences Honors Day Convocation and carries a $5,000 stipend.
For more information, contact Tori Gray, Director of Endowments and Honors, at email@example.com or (205) 348-7042.
