CALL FOR 2006 DISTINGUISHED FACULTY LECTURE NOMINEES
The Faculty Council is seeking nominations for the 2006 Distinguished Faculty Lecturer. The lectureship recognizes the achievements of notable Emory faculty, giving them the opportunity to convey major themes in their work and the general significance of their field to their colleagues.
The 2006 lecturer will be selected by a group of previous honorees: Frank Alexander (law), Brooks Holifield (theology) and Claire Sterk (public health). Michael Rogers, associate professor of mathematics at Oxford and chair-elect of Faculty Council, chairs the selection committee.
Nominations can be submitted through Dec. 1. All letters are confidential and should include a description of how nominees embody the highest academic ideals. The committee will forward a recommendation to President Jim Wagner, who will issue the formal invitation.
Letters of nomination may be sent to Rogers at email@example.com.
