Nominations are being accepted for the 2011 Presidential Gala Awards. Tenured faculty members who have demonstrated excellence in teaching, research, or service are eligible to receive one of these prestigious awards.

Any member of the Cal U community - students, faculty, staff or alumni - may make a nomination. Self-nominations are permitted.

Nominations close at 4 p.m. Oct. 18, 2010.

Although a faculty member may be nominated in multiple categories, he or she can compete for only one award. The nominee may select the category. For example, if a person is nominated for the teaching and service categories, he or she may submit support materials for one or the other, but not both.

Support materials from nominees are due by 4 p.m. Nov. 4, 2010.
