The mission of the University of Guam Faculty Senate is to be the vehicle by which the Faculty exercises its responsibility for the academic leadership of the university. Specificially, the Faculty Senate.
The Palulap Medallion Award is a prestigious award presented by the Faculty Senate of the University of Guam to a member of the community of Guam who has made extraordinary contributions to the protection and promotion of the fundamental principles of the academy for the University of Guam, including:
The award includes a medallion and plaque, each engraved with a figure of Palulap, the legendary Micronesian navigator whose great wisdom and skill continue to inspire youthful navigators today. It envisions the University as a flying proa being guided towards landfall by a navigator skilled and wise in the arts of academic governance. The award also includes a citation that refers to the recipient by name and summarizes the extraordinary contributions of the recipient.
Nominations are solicited annually, but the award is granted only when the case presented with the nomination unequivocally reflects an extraordinary contribution. Any number of nominations may be made in any one year, but no more than two awards may be granted in any year. Nominees who are not selected may be re-nominated for consideration in the subsequent cycles. Subsequent nominations must be appropriately updated and justified each time they are submitted. The award may be granted posthumously. It is announced and presented by the Senate at either the Fall or Spring Faculty Convocation.
The deadline for submission of nominations for this call is 5:00 PM Monday, 16 February 2015. Click here https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B_4sNIgsmFF-ZzZma0pfeU13MW8/view?usp=sharing for eligibility criteria and submission information.
