The Faculty Award of Merit presented by Penn Alumni was established in 2014 by Penn Alumni and the Office of the Provost. It is presented annually to an individual or group of collaborators who has made an outstanding contribution to alumni education and engagement at Penn by sharing their unique scholarship work with the alumni community. Special emphasis is placed on faculty members who go above and beyond the call of duty by engaging Penn alumni with the University as their intellectual home and educate the faculty community about the alumni engagement opportunities available to them. The award consists of a formal citation and will be presented during the fall Alumni Award of Merit Gala.
All Penn faculty, staff and alumni are eligible to nominate a faculty member for this award. For more information about award criteria and eligibility or to nominate a faculty member, visit www.alumni.upenn.edu/education Nominations are due by February 28, 2019.
