Edwin M. Moseley Faculty Lectureship Nomination Form

Established in 1957, this annual award recognizes a Skidmore faculty member for her/his outstanding scholarly achievement, artistic accomplishment, academic research, and/or creative work. The individual selected gives the Moseley Lecture, one of the college’s major public events of the year. While deemed a "lecture," the presentation has no prescribed format: it might center, for example, around a reading, performance or exhibition. The event is usually held during the month of February. The award acknowledges an exemplary level of scholarship and achievement that sets a standard for academic excellence at Skidmore. It is the highest honor that the Skidmore faculty can bestow on one of its own.
The completion of this form serves as a nomination letter for this year's candidates for the Moseley Award. To the best of your knowledge, please respond briefly to each of the following questions.
If you have questions or need assistance, please contact the Office of the Dean of the Faculty and Vice President for Academic Affairs at ext. 5705.
