As part of the university’s homecoming festivities in October, three CLAS professors were honored with 2005 Distinguished Faculty Awards from Florida Blue Key for their outstanding service and dedication to UF. German Professor Nora Alter, Psychology Professor Marc Branch and Communication Sciences and Disorders Professor Kenneth Gerhardt were among three of the six professors selected from across campus for the prestigious award. In the past four years alone, eleven of the 18 faculty members who have received these Distinguished Faculty Awards have been from CLAS.

“I believe you have the most for a couple of reasons,” says Danny Miller, chair of the awards committee. “As seen in the individuals chosen, CLAS puts a real emphasis on students—that is what is important to us. You have well-rounded candidates and you are motivated to nominate them to see the hardworking faculty be honored.”

Nominees are nominated by college deans, department chairs or university vice presidents and are selected by a campus-wide committee comprised of UF faculty and undergraduate and graduate students. Winners are announced at the Homecoming Education Celebration and are honored throughout homecoming weekend—riding in the homecoming parade, participating in a special President’s Brunch and experiencing a round of applause from Gator fans on the football field following the first quarter of the homecoming game.
