Inviting Nominations for Two Faculty Awards

The nomination process has begun for two prominent USC awards.

The Paul E. Hadley Faculty Award for Service to USC acknowledges post-retirement service by a USC faculty member.

Nominees must have made outstanding voluntary contributions toward enhancing the overall quality of university life for students, faculty, staff, alumni, retirees or other members of the USC community, and they must have contributed to the positive collegial spirit of the Trojan Family.

Nominations can be made by active and retired USC faculty and staff, students, USC alumni and members of the community. The Paul E. Hadley Faculty Award includes an honorarium of $500 and a plaque provided by the USC Emeriti Center. It will be presented at the annual Provost’s Faculty Retirement Recognition Luncheon, sponsored by interim provost Elizabeth Garrett and hosted by the Retired Faculty Association, on Nov. 18. Nominations and letters of recommendation must be submitted to the USC Emeriti Center by Wednesday, Oct. 6.

The Faculty Lifetime Achievement Award honors up to four retired faculty each year for their eminent careers. Outstanding retired faculty members are honored for their “notable contributions to the university, their profession and community.” Since its inception in 1982, the award has been given to 108 retired faculty members from the liberal arts, social sciences, natural sciences, physical sciences and professional schools.

Active and retired faculty, staff and friends of the university are urged to make nominations. Awards will be conferred at the 2011 Academic Honors Convocation in April. The Faculty Lifetime Achievement Award includes an honorarium of $2,000, an illuminated scroll setting forth the honoree’s contributions and a citation in the convocation program, all provided through the generosity of the administration of USC.

Nominations for awards must be received by the Faculty Lifetime Achievement Award Committee no later than 5 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 22. Late nominations will be considered the following year.

Nomination forms and guidelines for the 2010 Paul E. Hadley Faculty Award for Service to USC and the 2011 Faculty Lifetime Achievement Award are available on the USC Emeriti Center’s Web site. Go to and click on the “awards” link.
