Presidential Distinguished Merit Awards

Call for Nominations

(Formally called Presidential Faculty Gala Awards)



Nominations are being accepted for the 2014 Presidential Distinguished Merit 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 December 5, 2013.


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 January 21, 2014.  


This year interim President Gerri Jones will award each recipient during the 2014 Spring Graduate Commencement.  Each award recipient will be presented with a medallion, an engraved paperweight, $1,000 check and a $1,000 check to award to a student within the recipients department.



Nominations will be accepted via e-mail only.  Please submit e-mail nominations to the Presidential Distinguished Merit Awards Committee Chair, Dr. Christine Patti at .   The nominations must include the name of the nominee, category of nomination (teaching, research or service), and name of nominator.
