Phyllis A. Roth Distinguished Faculty Service Award

CLOSING DATE: Friday, September 23, 2016

The Phyllis A. Roth Distinguished Faculty Service Award recognizes a faculty member at Skidmore College for special achievement in service and leadership. The FDC welcomes nominations from faculty colleagues; each nominator will speak to the nominee’s record of continuing exceptional service to Skidmore. Excellence in service can include leadership of a department or program, service on committees and task forces, initiatives associated with institutional strategic plans, and initiatives that serve the institution across departments and programs. Although service to the Skidmore community is the primary criterion, service to communities more variously or broadly conceived may be considered. Candidates for this award will have served at the College for a number of years and have compiled a sterling record of contributions to our community.  Though recipients of this award should be selected primarily on the basis of individual merits, consideration may also be given to ‘fair distribution’ issues. These include the desire for diversity of discipline, gender, and ethnic background.


To facilitate the nomination process, a nomination form is available online.
