Nominees sought for Lecture

The University Senate is soliciting nominations for the 2000 Distinguished Faculty Lectureship, awarded annually to a member of the faculty. This year's lecture, the fourth, will be delivered in spring 1999 by Jacqueline Jordan Irvine, Candler Professor of Urban Education. Previous lecturers are historian Dan Carter, Professor of Religion Emeritus James Gustafson and geneticist Doug Wallace.

Nominations for the 2000 lecture are invited from all members of the University community. Nominees should embody the highest academic ideals and will be expected to deliver a lecture having broad interest and displaying exemplary scholarship.

Letters of nomination should be addressed to University Senate President-Elect John Boli in the Department of Sociology, or sent via e-mail to <jboli@emory.edu>. Nominations will be accepted through Monday, Nov. 30. All nomination letters are confidential and should include a brief description of what makes the nominee "distinguished" and why the University should award him or her this high honor.

President Bill Chace will make the final selection from a short list of nominees offered by the Senate's Distinguished Lecture committee, chaired by Professor Boli and including past and present lecturers.
