Nominations under way for Gores, Dinkelspiel and Cuthbertson awards

Nominations are being accepted through April 8 for the 1994 Gores, Dinkelspiel and Cuthbertson awards for service to the university. The awards will be presented by the president during commencement ceremonies on June 12.

Staff members are among those eligible for the Lloyd W. Dinkelspiel and the Kenneth M. Cuthbertson Awards. Faculty members, teaching staff and teaching assistants are eligible for the Walter J. Gores awards.

The Cuthbertson Award is open to all members of the community, and honors the quality of the contribution made to Stanford and the achievement of its goals in their broadest sense. Such contributions might be, for example, unusually distinguished service to the university, uncommon ingenuity in meeting university objectives, or exceptional intelligence, diligence, and sensitivity in discharging responsibilities.

Two Dinkelspiel awards will be given to faculty or staff - one for 10 or more years' service and one for fewer than 10 years' service - for their contributions to undergraduate education or to the quality of student life at Stanford. Two awards also will be given to graduating seniors in the class of 1993, to one man and one woman, who have combined praiseworthy academic achievement with significant contributions to undergraduate student life.

The Gores Awards recognize excellence of teaching at any level and in any form - lecturing, seminar discussions, individual tutorial or project sponsorship, or advising. Awards are ordinarily made each year to a senior faculty member, a junior faculty member or member of the teaching staff, and a student teaching assistant.

Nominations should be sent to the Subcommittee on University and Departmental Honors, c/o Registrar's Office, Old Union, Room B11, mail code 3005. The deadline is April 8.
