Through the gift of a generous donor, a new President’s Award for Engagement with Students is being given to a faculty member who goes beyond his or her responsibilities to engage and encourage students in learning, demonstrating deep caring and involvement with students’ learning. The honoree will have taken specific actions to be involved in student growth and learning—academic, social and professional. The recipient will have been available to interact with students outside class, link students to opportunities, and help them build their confidence as learners and potential contributors to society. Three-fifths of the monetary award goes directly to the recipient and two-fifths to the professor’s department to be managed by the recipient and used for extending the kinds of activities the award recognizes.
