Nominations being accepted for UOG’s Palulap Award
The Palulap Award is presented to a member of the Guam community who has made extraordinary contributions to the protection and promotion of the fundamental academic principles of the University of Guam, including academic freedom, institutional integrity, institutional and individual autonomy, and shared academic governance.
The award includes a plaque and a medallion engraved with the legendary Micronesian navigator Palulap, representing wisdom and leadership, and symbols of Micronesian celestial navigation including a sailing vessel, guiding stars, and land.
Nominations are solicited annually, although the award is only granted when a nominee unequivocally meets the award criteria.
The deadline to submit nominations is 5 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 17, 2020.
