MEMORANDUM

TO:  Deans, Department Heads/Chairs

RE:  James E. Holshouser, Jr. Award for Public Service

The James E. Holshouser Award for Public Service, formerly known as the Public Service Award, was created in 2007 to encourage, identify, recognize, and reward public service by faculty of the University of North Carolina system.  Each year, UNCG puts forth a campus nominee to the Board of Governors for consideration for the award.  The selection criteria include sustained, distinguished, and superb achievement in university public service and outreach and contributions to improving the quality of life for citizens of North Carolina.  The creativity and impact of such achievements should be beyond the normal accomplishments of productive faculty.

The Gardner/Holshouser award committee is currently seeking nominations for this distinguished award.  In honor of their achievements, the campus nominee will receive a $1000 honorarium and be recognized at the 2020 Faculty Awards ceremony.  The system winner, chosen by the Board of Governors, receives a $7,500 cash prize.  To submit a nomination, or learn more about the award, please visit https://provost.uncg.edu/Holshouser/nominations.htm.  Nominations are due by June 28, 2019.
