The $10,000 prize is awarded annually for a specific contribution, as opposed to a career of accomplishments, distinguishing the criteria for this prize from those used in tenure and promotion decisions. To qualify, the contribution must not only be recognized on campus, but it must also have received acclaim beyond the campus from peers or an organization. Nominations should include a description of the achievement and its demonstrable recognition.
These flexible funds are intended to enhance the awardees’ teaching, research and/or service activities and, thereby, further the University’s mission. The final deadline for nominations for this academic year is April 11, 2014. Submit nominations to Michael F. McGoff, senior vice provost, Office of the Provost.

CCPA to hold grief management seminars| March 3, 2014
The first seminar, titled “Understanding and Supporting Grieving Children,” held from 9 a.m.-noon and tailored for practitioners, will explore the fundamental principle of supporting children ages 5-12 who are grieving the death of a significant person. The presentation will include discussion about developmental stages, how feelings are expressed in normal and complicated grief, and steps to follow as practitioners to best facilitate integration and build emotional skills. Lallas will offer a framework by which to approach this process and suggestions for language to use, and will coach caregivers with fun and creative activities.
The second seminar, “Understanding and Supporting Grieving Teens,“ held from 1-4 p.m., will address the challenges and opportunities specific to teens ages 13-17 who are grieving the death of a significant person. While a teenager's understanding of death is developmentally closer to that of an adult, they are managing other natural stages of emotional and social growth that can make these years a difficult time to process death. Lallas will offer a framework by which to approach supporting grieving teens, as well as provide nformation about developmental stages and structuring support groups for teens. Case examples will also be provided.
The cost to attend either seminar is $65 per person or $90 to attend both sessions. Light refreshments will be provided. Lunch is on your own. To register, go online. For questions, contact Joann Lindstrom at 777-9178.
