ATHENS, Ohio (Feb. 13, 2007) -- The Office of the Provost is seeking nominations of noteworthy Ohio University employees who are active in service to others. Recipients of this recognition will be chosen to participate in a series of lunchtime public conversations titled "Affirming Humanity."
These activities are broadly defined and can include Affirming Humanity through teaching, scholarship, student activities, or community service. These service efforts can be the result of one person's initiative, an organized group's mission, or a grass-roots movement that contributes to a more humane and dignified environment. While tangible results are important, humanity is also demonstrated by the ethics and actions of service, goodwill and respect for others.
Provost Kathy Krendl described the series as befitting the spirit of Vision OHIO.
"One of the guiding principles of Vision OHIO is valuing people and helping them realize their full potential. This series, following last year's Affirming Diversity series, focuses on individuals whose lives serve as models for affirming humanity at Ohio University as well as in the broader community," she said.
The Office of the Provost, the Ombuds Office, Institutional Equity, University College and University Human Resources are sponsoring the series.
Please send nominations using the downloadable nomination form to Provost Kathy Krendl at 304 Cutler Hall, marked "Attention: Affirming Humanity." Nominations must be received by 5 p.m. Friday, March 9.
