Dear Colleagues:

This is a call for nominations for the 2021-2022 Dickson Emeritus Professorship Award and the Carole E. Goldberg Emeriti Service Award and an explanation of nominating procedures for both awards.

THE DICKSON EMERITUS PROFESSORSHIP AWARD

The Dickson Award was created by a gift endowment from the late Edward A. Dickson, a Regent of the University of California from 1913 to 1946. The award honors outstanding research, scholarly work, teaching, and/or educational service (e.g. service in professional, University, Academic Senate, emeriti, departmental or editorial posts, or committees) performed by an emeritus/emerita professor since retirement. Each of the UC campuses has received funds that will support one or more awards each year.

THE CAROLE E. GOLDBERG EMERITI SERVICE AWARD

The Goldberg Award was created in 2014 to recognize extraordinary service by an emeritus/emerita professor to the academic enterprise after retirement. The award honors outstanding service in professional, University, Academic Senate, emeriti, departmental or editorial posts, or committees performed at UCLA by an emeritus/emerita professor since retirement. 

Nominating Procedures for Both Awards:

Departments are limited to one nomination each year for each award. Department chairs or their designees are asked to submit nominations. Individuals also may nominate colleagues for these awards, but must coordinate with the department chair to submit nominations.

For both awards, nominations must include a cover letter, a copy of the nominee’s curriculum vitae and two supporting letters from leaders in the field commenting specifically on the nominee’s achievements since retirement.

  • Dickson Award — nominators should concentrate on and highlight the nominee’s distinctive research, scholarly work, and/or educational service since retirement.
  • Goldberg Award — nominators should concentrate on and highlight the nominee’s distinguished service to UCLA since retirement.

Nominations are due by Friday, February 18, 2022. Please submit your nominations online via the Emeriti Awards Nomination Portal.

The awardee(s) will be announced on or before Tuesday, April 26, 2022. The awards, consisting of cash prizes and certificates, will be presented in the spring by the UCLA Emeriti Association.

If you have any questions regarding the eligibility or nomination procedure, please contact Professor Emerita Rosina Becerra, [email protected].

Sincerely,
