HSU Distinguished Faculty Awards

Outstanding Service Award

The Outstanding Service Award is conferred on an occasional basis, as appropriate, on a member of the HSU faculty for a record of superlative service to the university and/or community. In cases where nominees are perceived as equally superlative in their service activities, contributions to teaching and research and creative activites may be considered, insofar as these activities bear direct relevance to the nominee's primary role serving the university and community.

Nominees have been employees of the University for at least three of the previous five years and the greater part of the activities for which they are nominated have been performed in connection with the nominee's employment at HSU.

The annual call for nominations goes out in the Fall and nominations are reviewed by a Faculty Awards Committee. Recommendations for awards are made to the University Senate and forwarded to the President of the University. Awardees are honored and recognized the University's Honors Dinner in April and at the University Senate reception in May. Each awardee is invited to deliver a public lecture in the following academic year.
