University of Nebraska-Lincoln
Louise Pound-George Howard Distinguished Career Award
In 1990, the University of Nebraska-Lincoln Faculty Senate established the Louise Pound-George Howard Distinguished Career Award in order to recognize individuals with a distinguished career of service to the University of Nebraska. This award is conferred upon an individual who, during his or her career at UNL, has made an exceptional contribution to the University. The individual’s contribution may have been made through teaching, research, public service, administration, or a combination of these factors and reflects a long-standing commitment to the University. Nominees for the award shall be present or former employees of UNL and may be either staff or faculty members.
The award is presented to the recipient at the University Honors Convocation in the spring, and the recipient will be given an appropriate award to symbolize the importance of the award. Notification of the award will be made in the Spring Commencement program and the name of the recipient is placed upon a plaque in the Chancellor’s Office. Beginning in spring 2011, the winner is also awarded a plaque at the April Faculty Senate meeting and a reception is held in honor of the recipient.
