Friday, March 1, is the deadline for nominations for the Edith Rathbun Outreach and Engagement Excellence Award.

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 Edith Rathbun Outreach and Engagement Excellence Award will receive a $750 award. 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 on the Office of the Provost website.

Winners will be recognized at the UT Outstanding Awards Reception Tuesday, April 16, at 5:30 p.m. in the Thompson Student Union Auditorium.

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.
