  4. INFORMATION ITEMS
    1. Distinguished Service Award Nominations
      Nominations are being accepted for the OSU Distinguished Service Award through March 10, 2005. The Oregon State University Distinguished Service Award is awarded to persons, and in some cases to organizations, who have made exceptional contributions, or who have rendered unusual service, to society.

      While persons or organizations receiving the awards need not have any connection with Oregon State University, most of those previously selected have had some OSU connection. Generally, the Distinguished Service Award is not awarded to current staff members or persons with emeritus status, except under unusual circumstances. Contributions beyond OSU, to the state, the region, the nation and/or the world, are critical.

      Additional information about this award can be found online at http://oregonstate.edu/dept/senate/awards/nom/dsa/.
    2. Information Technology Accessibility
      OSU has new guidelines to assist the University community in making its programs and services provided through information technology accessible to persons with disabilities. Any questions regarding these Information Technology Accessibility at OSU Guidelines can be directed to Angelo Gomez at angelo.gomez@oregonstate.edu.
    3. University Faculty Award Nominations
      A memo has been sent to deans, directors, and department heads/chairs informing them that nominations will be accepted until April 10 for the faculty awards listed below. The criteria and nomination form for each award is linked to the Individual Awards page on the web.
