Reminder - Deadline approaching for Emeriti Award Nominations
Please nominate someone for the Dickson and Panunzio awards this year. You yourself may be the one you choose to nominate. Please contact our Awards Committee Chair, Caroline Kane at firstname.lastname@example.org with the name of your candidate. She will follow-up to acquire the needed information.
The following is a brief description of each of these awards: The Dickson Award winner(s) are selected by the Academic Senate. Edward A. Dickson served as a Regent of the University of California from 1913 to 1946, the longest tenure of any Regent. In 1955, Mr. Dickson presented the University with a gift endowment which enables each campus to make an annual $10,000 award recognizing teaching, research, or public service by one or more emeritus/a professors, or a salary stipend for emeriti professors on recall. The highest priority is for support of activities that benefit the campus and for which funding is not available from other sources. One nomination from each Department is considered and reviewed. The submission deadline is January 14, 2020.
The Panunzio Awardees are nominated by each campus’ Academic Senate, and this system wide award is decided by a committee at UCLA. Created by a bequest from Professor Constantine Panunzio of UC Los Angeles, the Constantine Panunzio Distinguished Emeriti Award honors outstanding scholarly work or educational service (e.g. service in professional, University, Academic Senate, emeriti, departmental, or editorial posts or committees) performed since retirement by a University of California emeritus or emerita in the humanities or social sciences. This award comes with a $5,000 prize in addition to the publicity surrounding the significance of the award. Nominations to the Berkeley Academic Senate are due this year on December 6, 2019.
