Orthodox Christian leader to visit Emory
Commissioned in 1995, the President's Medal is conferred only on individuals whose impact on the world has enhanced the dominion of peace or has enlarged the range of cultural achievement. Analogous to the honorary degree, the President's Medal is one of the two highest honors granted by Emory. The medal was first presented in 1995 to His Holiness the Fourteenth Dalai Lama of Tibet; the second was awarded in 1996 to President Carlos Menem of Argentina.
Employees are advised that access to WHSCAB will be restricted during the luncheon, and the parking lot adjacent to the building will be closed. Those wishing to see His All Holiness may gather outside WSHCAB's Clifton Road entrance prior to the noon luncheon, said John Skandalakis, director of the Centers for Surgical Anatomy and Technique in the School of Medicine and general chairman of the patriarchal visit to the Atlanta diocese.
SCHOLARSHIP & RESEARCH
Teaching fund proposals
University Teaching Fund proposals are due Nov. 3. These intramural funds are used to support teaching improvement and innovation and are open to any full-time faculty member. The UTC expects to disburse about $250,00 each year for direct teaching support and salary support. This is the second round of funding for the current academic year; proposals should cover projects beginning in the spring or summer of 1998 and ending by Aug. 31. Awards will be announced on Dec. 15. For more information, call teaching fund chair Vaidy Sunderam at 727-5926.
The Digital Information Council is requesting proposals to the Superfund, currently chaired by law school Dean Howard Hunter and co-chaired by Interim Provost Rebecca Chopp.
The Superfund is intended to fund the implementation of new initiatives and ideas, encourage experimentation and provide trial support for access to information resources that may go beyond the capacity or program support of any one campus unit or library.
Proposals will be accepted during two periods. The first deadline is Nov. 17, and the second is April 3, 1998. Awards will be announced in January and at the end of May. Detailed information on the Superfund is available at <http://www. law.emory.edu/LAW/superfund.html>.
