Presidential Gala Faculty Awards

Call for Nominations


Nominations are being accepted for the 2013 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 4:00pm on October 26th, 2012.


Although a faculty member may be nominated in multiple categories, he or she can only compete for 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 4:00pm November 9th , 2012.  


Former President Angelo Armenti, Jr. established the Gala Faculty Awards to recognize deserving faculty for their outstanding work.  This year acting President Gerri Jones will continue this tradition.  Each award recipient will be presented with a medallion, an engraved paperweight, and $2,000 check at the Presidential Gala in June 2013. 


The 2012 Gala Award winners were Dr. Marc Federico (Teaching), Dr. Paul Crawford (Research), Dr. Kelton Edmonds (Service).  Gala awards are separate from those given by the Faculty Professional Development Committee, which recognizes recipients at Commencement. 


Nominations will be accepted via e-mail or via paper copy.  Please submit e-mail nominations to the Presidential Gala Faculty Awards Committee Chair, Dr. David Boehm, at  Send hard copies to him at the Department of Biological and Environmental Sciences, Box 45.  The nominations must include the name of the nominee, category of nomination (teaching, research or service), and name of nominator.
