As many of you are aware, the DFA is one of the organizations that supports the Charles P. Nash Prize, which is funded by the campus community and Charlie’s family and friends. Its goal is to acknowledge achievement in and commitment to promoting shared governance in keeping with Charlie Nash’s exceptional efforts in promoting and advocating for faculty interests and welfare.
This year’s prize will go to Robert May, professor of Philosophy. As noted in a recent Dateline article about this award, professor May joined the systemwide Committee on Faculty Welfare in 1996, chaired the panel in 1999-2000, and has been an ex oficio member since 2009. He has been a member of the committee’s Health Care Task Force since 1999 and chair since 2009. He served on the President’s Task Force on Post-Employment Benefits in 2010, and joined the Health Benefits Work Group in 2011.
Professor May also figured in our messages about UCD’s healthcare facilitator program.
The award dinner, hosted by Chancellor Linda P.B. Katehi and Provost and Executive Vice Chancellor Ralph J. Hexter, will be Tuesday, April 30th, in the AGR Room of the Buehler Alumni Center. The reception starts at 6:00 PM and the dinner at 6:30 PM. The cost is $35.00 per person for dinner, paid in advance. RSVPs with payment are due by Monday, April 22.
