Providing service is an important way the faculty in our school share knowledge and expertise that demonstrates our ability to carry out our mission to improve the health of populations, communities and individuals, locally to globally. The Dean's Award for Community Service recognizes outstanding contributions and achievements toward fulfillment of our community service mission. The endowment for the Dean's awards was established in 1995 by Albert Rekate, MD.
Each department Chair or Chair's representative may solicit nominations as he/she sees fit, but self-nominations to a department Chair or directly to the Dean will be accepted. Each department may nominate one person for this award and will forward a cover letter, recent CV, and any other supporting materials if deemed appropriate to the Dean's office.
This award is presented to a faculty member in the School of Public Health and Health Professions in recognition of achievements in providing professionally relevant community service in furtherance of the School's mission to improve the health of populations, communities or individuals over the past year. The recipient is selected by the Dean.
