Nominations Sought for Faculty Commencement Awards

Student Nominations Requested for Faculty Commencement Awards by Friday, March 20th

While commencement is a time primarily to mark the accomplishments of our graduating students, it also is a time when Ursinus College recognizes the distinguished achievement of a few faculty members. Students have the opportunity to nominate faculty members for recognition by the campus community through their receipt of the following two awards. The awards will be given as part of the Commencement ceremonies in May. Recipients are nominated by students, recommended by a committee composed of faculty and administrators which submits a short list to the President, who under the terms established for the awards, makes a final selection. The deadline for nominations is March 20, 2020. Jones Award for Distinguished Advising and Mentoring: An adviser works in a formal advising capacity, such as first-year advising or major/minor advising. A mentor is a person who offers guidance, support, role-modeling, and advice to another person. To nominate a faculty member and see a list of eligible faculty, click here.
