The Faculty Senate voted unanimously at its January 30 meeting to honor two exceptional members of the University of Miami faculty with its prestigious awards, the Distinguished Faculty Scholar Award and the Outstanding Teaching Award, at its annual awards ceremony on April 8.
Harry W. Flynn Jr., M.D., professor of ophthalmology and J. Donald M. Gass Chair in Ophthalmology at the Miller School of Medicine, will be presented with the Distinguished Faculty Scholar Award in recognition of his outstanding scholarly achievement and dedication.
The Outstanding Teaching Award, which is presented annually to a faculty member in acknowledgement of their excellence and a distinguished record of teaching, will be given to Donald Spivey, Ph.D., professor of history and Cooper Fellow in the College of Arts and Sciences.
In appreciation of their dedication and contributions to their chosen fields, Dr. Flynn and Dr. Spivey will receive their awards at the Faculty Senate awards ceremony on Monday, April 8, starting at 5 p.m. in the Robert and Judi Prokop Newman Alumni Center on the Coral Gables campus. After receiving the Distinguished Faculty Scholar Award, Dr. Flynn will present a short lecture on his research at Bascom Palmer Eye Institute.
Last November, the Faculty Senate voted to award the James W. McLamore Outstanding Service Award to Norman H. Altman V.M.D., emeritus professor of pathology and laboratory medicine at the Miller School. Dr. Altman’s award will also be presented at the annual awards ceremony.
All members of the University community are invited to attend and recognize these outstanding award recipients.
