Re: Call for Edward A. Dickson Emeriti Professorship nominations


The Dickson Emeriti Professorship is awarded on an annual basis for a term of one academic year to an emerita or emeritus faculty member. The funds associated with the Professorship may be used to support the research, recall teaching appointment, or public service of the holder of the Professorship.

Past recipients of the Dickson Emeriti Professorship have found this to be a rewarding opportunity. As in the past, we expect that up to $10,000 will be provided in conjunction with this award.

The departmental recommendation should describe how the funds would be used, including a detailed budget. The recommendation should also explain the activity’s benefit to the department, the campus, or University as a whole. Recommendations should be submitted to my office via the appropriate Dean’s office by April 30, 2016. Questions may be directed to Cindy Doherty at or x8332.

Thank you.
