MEMORANDUM
April 1, 2014

 TO: AU Community
 FROM: Scott A. Bass, Provost
 SUBJECT: 2014 University Faculty Award Recipients and Years of Service Honorees
____________________________________________________________________________

I am delighted to announce the 2014 University Faculty Award recipients. These faculty members represent the finest scholars and teachers in the university community. Each has contributed immensely to the university, to the lives of students and colleagues, and to his or her respective disciplines. Their valuable contributions can be seen in their teaching, research, publications, university and public service, and other scholarly awards and creative work.

I am also pleased to recognize the faculty who have reached milestone anniversaries ranging from 25 to 50 years of service as well as the faculty who will retire this year. These scholars have dedicated their careers to AU and have helped shape the institution that stands today.

Both groups will be honored at the annual Faculty Recognition Dinner at the National Press Club. Please join me in congratulating the 2014 faculty honorees listed below.
