Call for Favorite Faculty Nominations

Housing and Residence Life is seeking “Favorite Faculty” nominations from students who live on campus. A reception honoring faculty who are nominated and the students who submitted nominations will be held on Wednesday, April 1 at 5:30 p.m. in Owens Banquet Room. Teaching/Research and Administrative/Professional Faculty are eligible to be nominated as “Favorite Faculty.”

The “Favorite Faculty” program is an effort to encourage students to recognize the positive impact that faculty have had on them and their college experiences. This reception for the nominators and nominees provides a forum for students and faculty to spend time together outside of the classroom and celebrate their positive interactions.

All on campus residents are eligible to nominate up to two faculty members for their outstanding contributions, dedication to students, or personal influence. Students can submit their nominations online.

On April 1, 2015 at 5:30 p.m. a reception will be held in the Owens Banquet room for both nominated faculty and the student nominators. Faculty will receive a letter informing them of the nomination along with an invitation to the reception. Nominating students will be notified when their faculty member has submitted an RSVP for the event.

Nominations will be accepted until March 6, 2015. For questions regarding this event please contact James Penven at 540-231-6205,
