Nominations are now open for the inaugural DUE Epitome Award. Established by Christina Downey, IUPUI’s new associate vice chancellor for undergraduate education and dean of University College, this award recognizes exemplary faculty and staff who support the success of undergraduate students at IUPUI.
This new award is unique among other campus awards in that it is based solely on student nominations. The nominees receiving the greatest number of votes will be selected for the award.
The DUE Epitome Award will recognize one person in each of the following categories:
- Resident faculty
- Adjunct faculty
In her first month at IUPUI, Downey prioritized the launch of the award because of the impact she knew it could make.
