s TJ Award nominations sought

The Thomas Jefferson Award Committee is soliciting nominations for this year’s honor, to be presented at Fall Convocation. The Thomas Jefferson Award, considered the highest honor given to a member of the University community, consists of a citation and a cash prize. It is given to a member of the faculty, administration or staff who has exemplified in character, work and influence the principles and ideals of Thomas Jefferson, and thus has advanced the objectives for which Jefferson founded the University.

Nominations with supporting data, including a resume and letters of support, should be sent to committee chair Jahan Ramazani, Department of English Language and Literature, Bryan Hall 410, P.O. Box 400121, by Sept. 25.

Last year’s winner was David T. Gies, Commonwealth Professor of Spanish.
