Call for nominations for Davids-Dunham Award

Submitted by Loren Greenman

The College of Arts and Sciences Diversity Committee invites nominations of faculty members for the fall 2021 Davids-Dunham Award.

The award supports research, writing, teaching and professional development. The Davids-Dunham Award celebrates faculty members who identify with underrepresented groups for their excellence in scholarship and faculty members who through their scholastic efforts support diversity at Kansas State University. This support may be exemplified by the nature of the nominee’s work and/or by their plans to use the award to increase diversity in their field.

We encourage anyone to nominate faculty they think are deserving of this award. The nomination form may be found online. Space is provided for optional statements of support as well. Self-nominations are accepted. This award will be given preferentially to junior faculty on the path to tenure, although mid-career faculty are welcome to be nominated. Subsequent to the nominations, we will request a short description of the plans for the funds from the nominees.

Review of nominations will begin on Nov. 26 but will continue until the award is given. Nominations after this date are still welcome.

Note: The Davids-Dunham Award is named for Sharice Davids and Ann Dunham. These individuals represent Kansas, have contributed to a discipline included in the College of Arts and Sciences, and have made tremendous contributions to our society. Their work embodies the spirit of the candidates who win this award.
