for 2002 Jefferson Award
Marshall Duke, Candler Professor of Psychology and winner of the
2001 Thomas Jefferson Award, is soliciting nominations for the 2002
Duke chairs the selection committee for the Jefferson Award, given
annually to a faculty member for significant service through personal
activities, influence and leadership, and presented to the winner
at Commencement each May. As specified by the awards original
donor, the Robert Earll McConnell Foundation, the personal and professional
qualities of the recipient should be those which we believe
Jefferson would have considered essential to the intellectual, social
and political advancement of society.
The committee has established a two-stage nomination process: a
first letter (due
Feb. 4) should identify the nominee as well as seven people, within
or outside of Emory, from whom relevant reference may be solicited;
a second letter (due March 4) should provide the committee with
compelling reasons why the nominee should be selected. A nomination
is not complete without both letters.
