David Savage Award
Purpose of the Award
The David Savage Award will be given to a deserving faculty member whose vision and sustained service to the College have advanced the general academic and intellectual welfare of our community of teacher-scholars. The work of this faculty member should reflect the selfless ethic demonstrated over the years by Dr. David Savage, who provided a model of inspirational leadership, tireless support, and genuine respect for his colleagues.
Current tenured faculty members and senior lecturers in Lewis & Clark’s College of Arts & Sciences who are not previous recipients are eligible to receive the David Savage Award.
Members of the faculty of the College of Arts & Sciences may respond to a yearly call for nominations from the Dean of the College by forwarding the names of eligible members of the faculty for the David Savage Award. A nominating letter should state clearly and concisely how the nominee has advanced the general academic and intellectual welfare of our community of teacher-scholars.
Evaluation of nominations
The Faculty Council will review nominations and recommend an award to the Dean of the College. A result of the review of nominations may be a recommendation against making an award in a given year.
The David Savage Award carries a one-time stipend of $1,000 and a plaque.
