|PURPOSE OF THE AWARD
The Administrative Leadership Award is given out on an occasional basis as outstanding candidates are identified. It honors administrators on AGHE member campuses who have made exceptional efforts in support of gerontology or geriatrics education.
Nominees should be administrators above the level of everyday program operation, such as Deans, Provosts, or Presidents. Such individuals must have 'gone the extra mile' to support gerontology or geriatrics education on campus. At the time of the nomination, the nominee must be affiliated with an AGHE member institution.
Nominees will be reviewed and an awardee will recommended by the AGHE Awards Committee with final approval given by the Association's Executive Committee.
The awardee will be recognized and receive a certificate at the annual AGHE meeting (if in attendance) and recognized in the annual conference book of an appropriate higher education organization. The recipient(s) will be invited to attend AGHE's annual conference at their own expense.
To be considered for the award, the nominator must submit, via email, a nominations packet that includes a primary letter of nomination, a minimum of two and a maximum of four supporting letters of nomination, and a copy of the nominee's curriculum vitae.
