Westhafer Award Committee

The purpose of the Westhafer Award Committee (WAC) is to obtain nominations from faculty and staff, screen nominees, and select winner of this award—for either teaching, research, or creative scholarship.

The composition will be one member from each college except Arts and Sciences, which has a representative from the humanities and social sciences and a representative from the natural and physical sciences.

Members are nominated by the dean of each college and appointed by the provost.  Members serve three-year staggered terms.
