Back to Top Submit Nomination for Kingston Award

Nominations are now being accepted for the Kingston Award.

The Kingston Award was established in recognition of Richard “Dick” Kingston’s creativity and innovation in education.  The award consists of a small monetary grant, an individual plaque and medal, and the addition of the recipient’s name to a master plaque.  This award initially (1984) “was instituted as a means for the College to recognize, reward, and encourage innovation in the classroom, laboratory, and clinic.”

The Dick Kingston Award was originally developed to recognize a creative, innovative, original teaching project or “product” that directly supports the academic focus of the College of Health Sciences (CHS) and has been shown to be directly beneficial to CHS students.  In 1991 the focus of the Kingston Award was broadened to also recognize outstanding contributions and/or long term consistent excellence in teaching. 

Nominations must be made no later than January 14, 2012. Deliver nomination or email to:
Carl Mattacola, Kingston Award Committee Chair
CTW, Rm. 210E
Office: 859-218-0860
