TO: Ken Williamson OSU Faculty Senate President FROM: Laura Connolly Chair, Faculty Recognition and Awards Committee DATE: April 1, 1999 RE: Proposed Award for Excellence in Service The awards presented each year at University Day recognize the exceptional performance of a broad spectrum of the campus community. However, there is no award designed to recognize Professional Faculty. In order to rectify this oversight, the 1995-96 Faculty Recognition and Awards Committee (FRAC) initiated a proposal for a new award, to be called the "OSU Award for Excellence in Service." The 1996-97 FRAC finalized this proposal, but the Faculty Senate has never approved it because a permanent source of funding could not be identified. The criteria for the award are attached. This year's FRAC has agreed to renew the effort to identify a source of funding for this award. It is our intention to work with the OSU Management Association (OSUMA) and the Development Office to create a permanent endowment for this award. In the meantime, we have asked for a small annual contribution from the President, the Deans of each College, and OSUMA, so that the important work of Professional Faculty will no longer go unrecognized. Given the already substantial delay, we believe this is preferable to waiting until permanent funding is forthcoming. Several people have agreed to donate funds, but we must set up a foundation account before these can be collected. We are asking the Faculty Senate for two things at this time: (1) approval of the award criteria (2) permission to open a foundation account for this award Thank you for your consideration.* * * * *
