Nominations are being accepted for the Edith Rathbun Outreach and Engagement Excellence Award through Friday, March 20.

Take a few minutes to recognize a deserving colleague who has distinguished himself or herself through exceptional community outreach and excellence in community-engaged scholarship, whether in research, teaching or professional service.

Each recipient of the Rathbun Outreach and Engagement Excellence Award will receive a $750 prize. Two awardees will be chosen.

The Rathbun Excellence Award was endowed through a generous and growing gift from Edith Rathbun and further gifts from campus and community donors. It recognizes outstanding outreach and engagement scholarship in any field, discipline or area at The University of Toledo. Full-time faculty members in all colleges are eligible to receive the award.

The one-page nomination form is available online here.

The selection committee is composed of faculty members who served on the scholarship of engagement subcommittee of UT’s former Council on Outreach and Engagement.

Honorees will be recognized at the UT Outstanding Awards Reception Monday, April 27, at 5:30 p.m. in the Student Union Ingman Room.
