Nominations Sought For Thomas Jefferson Award; Deadline is Friday

September 19, 2005 -- Nominations are being sought for the Thomas Jefferson Award, the highest honor given to a member of the University community. Presented at Fall Convocation, it lauds a member of the faculty, administration or staff who has exemplified in character, work and influence the principles and ideals of Thomas Jefferson.

Past recipients have included persons whose contributions have been in teaching, scholarship, administration or combinations of these. While activities and achievements outside the University are relevant considerations, long and committed service to the University in some way is essential. Eligible candidates must have served at the University for a minimum of 15 years in a full-time capacity. Retired faculty and staff are not eligible.

Nominations with supporting data (e.g., resume, letters) should be sent to the chair of the Thomas Jefferson Award Committee, Leake Cottage, P.O. Box 400139, by noon on Sept. 23.
