MEMORANDUM
March 14, 2011

 TO:  The American University Community
 FROM:  Scott A. Bass, Provost
 SUBJECT:   2011 University Faculty Award Recipients and Honorees

____________________________________________________________________________

I am delighted to announce the 2011 University Faculty Award Recipients. These faculty represent the finest scholars and teachers in the university community. Each has contributed immensely to the university, to the lives of their students and colleagues, and to their respective disciplines as demonstrated in their teaching, research, publications, university and public service, awards, and other scholarly and creative work.

I am also pleased to recognize the faculty who have reached milestone anniversaries ranging from 25 to 40 years of service and 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 2011 faculty honorees listed below.
