2018 University Lecture – Nominations Deadline April 9, 2018
From Dr. Jean Morrison, University Provost and Chief Academic Officer
The University Lecture Committee asks for your assistance in identifying nominees for the 2018 University Lecturer.
Nomination forms are due by April 9, 2018 and should be submitted via e-mail to the Office at the Provost at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The University Lecture was established in 1950 to honor members of the Boston University faculty engaged in outstanding research. University Lecturers represent a vast array of disciplines and research topics, yet share a common commitment to excellence in scholarly inquiry and discovery. Presented each fall, the annual lecture provides an opportunity to highlight the work of a distinguished scholar and engage both the University community and the broader public in the vibrant intellectual life of Boston University.
The selection process for the Lecture is designed to seek the input of a broad cross-section of the University community – one that we hope will encourage the nomination of candidates who reflect BU’s commitment to diversity and inclusion.
Information about the Lectureship, a list of past lecturers, and a downloadable 2018 nomination form can be found on the following website: http://www.bu.edu/provost/awards-publications/award-opportunities/lecture/.
Please consider nominating one or more of your colleagues for this honor and also bringing this invitation to the attention of others in the University community.
Thank you for your assistance in recognizing the outstanding research efforts of Boston University’s talented faculty.
