Nominations are now being accepted for the Frank and Dorothy Humel Hovorka Prize, awarded annually to an active or emeritus faculty member whose exceptional achievements in teaching, research and scholarly service have benefited the community, the nation and the world.

Established in 1994 by the late Dorothy Humel Hovorka, a leader in the arts and community affairs and an honorary member of the University’s Board of Trustees, the award honors the late Frank Hovorka, who was a distinguished member of the faculty in the Department of Chemistry for many years.

The recipient is selected on the recommendation of a committee consisting of previous awardees.

To nominate a faculty member, download and complete an entry form from the Office of Academic and Faculty Affairs website and send the form, a letter of nomination (two to three pages) and the nominee’s CV or other biographical description by email to by March 18. 

The prize winner will be announced in May.
