Nominations for the Albert Levy Award, which recognizes outstanding scientific contributions by Emory faculty, are now being accepted. The nomination deadline is Feb. 15, and all applications and supporting materials are due by March 15 to the University Research Committee Office.
The award honors faculty members for published research of superior quality. Final decisions will be announced in May, and recipients will be invited to a Levy Awards Seminar, where they will give a speech highlighting their work, and also will receive a monetary award and a commemorative plaque.
Applications can be obtained from the University Research Committee website (www.urc.emory.edu) or from the URC Office, G65 Rollins Research Building, 404-727-7503.
On Feb. 15, the President’s Commission on the Status of Women (PCSW) will host an open forum in the Jones Room of Woodruff Library at 4 p.m.
President Jim Wagner will be present at the event, and PCSW encourages all members of the Emory community to attend and voice their concerns about issues affecting women and, in turn, help the commission understand which it should address.
Potential topics of discussion include professional advancement, leadership opportunities, work-life balance, sexual assault, diversity and the campus climate. For more information, visit www.pcsw.emory.edu.
